Great appointment! Carmen helped me with yarn for two sweaters. Lovely time. Very fast shipping.
So so soft and it knits up beautifully. I've fallen in love with it. Stunning colour too.
Lovely vibrant colour options & very easy to use with no splitting & soft feel
This is a fantastic yarn. It sits well on my needles and is producing a lovely smooth, even result. The range of colours is great and I am really pleased with my choice.
The colours and feel of the wool is always inspiring. I now live over 100 miles away but travel to Bath to stock up.
