I uploaded some photos. While you can see slubby spots and retied ends in some photos, you'll also notice the beautiful variegation.
On a happy note, I purchased this through Amazon's add-on program, and the price was an incredible value.
Because I had such a good experience making the cowls, I have since gone on to make a hat, two hooded cowls, and a pair of slippers calling for Wool-Ease Thick and Quick and still managed to get everything else done that one does in a day. Quick.
Fortunately, out of the 20 skeins I have worked with so far, I have not had the knotting problem another reviewer expressed. I'm so glad about that. After reading that review, I chanced it, to order this yarn anyway. I'm going to use this yarn for future projects. If I run into any problems, I'll try and give an update.
I'm leery of ordering items such as this, with color being so hard to determine accurately via my computer screen, but was happy with the ones I ordered: charcoal (my favorite), black, blossom, fisherman, pine, raspberry, and granite. I wanted to try the cobalt, because I was looking for purple, but it currently (12/2013) isn't Prime available. I haven't made an exhaustive search for this yarn to ascertain the availability of additional colors to what Amazon shows, but I do wish there were more purple shades and tones. My sisters are ga-ga over purple! (By the way, I'm glad Amazon carries this yarn as I live in an area that only carries three colors at Walmart.)
This yarn does pill (get fuzzy) a bit. Good luck to you! Happy stitching!
The yarn itself feels very nice and soft, and the wool isn't itchy at all, a very pleasant surprise. It comes in a nice big skein that works perfectly fr a hat or two, or maybe a pair of arm warmers. My only complaint with it is that it seems to unravel quite easily, and it doesn't put up with much tension. My pup picked it up and managed to break the strand of yarn pretty quickly just by carrying it around... Not that many people are giving their knitted projects to their dogs, but you get my drift. I wish it were a bit sturdier.
Still, it's a VERY good product for the low price point, and it's really fun to work with thicker yarn. As a beginning knitter myself, thick yarn makes it easier to see progress and feels like you're knitting faster.
If you don't mind the slight unraveling, definitely go for this, it's a smokin' hot deal!
This yarn is soft and thick. It is 20% wool and 80% acrylic. The yarn is not itchy at all. I mostly use it to make hooded cowls for toddlers and kids. I have had nothing but great reviews on the color, quality, and softness of this yarn. It is a must buy!
