Color: Natural
This is a very inexpensive yarn (when compared to other wool yarns of similar yardage) that is great for certain projects. For example, it felts easily, so anything along that category is good. I've also seen some nice cabled scarves knitted from this as well...most likely due to its dense nature.

However, this is hardly your all-purpose, go-to wool. For one thing, it's very thin. I can't believe they can get away with calling this worsted. I have DK yarn that is as thick or thicker than Fisherman's Wool. The other detractor is that it's very rough and thready. If you roll the yarn in your fingers, you can just about feel every single thread in the ply. I used this to try and knit up some warm indoor socks, only to find that stepping in them was painful and left little horizontal and vertical marks on the soles of my feet. And it's very, very rough. I had to use a yarn guide soon after I started to knit because it rubbed the top of my index finger raw. I would not recommend using for a garment that lays against the skin. Lastly, it's messy. I don't expect my wool to be pristine, but the amount of junk I pulled from one skein was ridiculous. Enough hay to line a hamster cage, various black hairs (not sheep...goat maybe?), and even a couple of pieces that I couldn't identify...one of them metal.

The price is great, but it's not worth the limitations, especially when there are other yarn companies (Cascade, Berroco, Plymouth, etc...) that offer a much better product at reasonable prices as well.

Color: Natural Verified Purchase
I have bought this yarn in the natural and the brown and they do felt. I have numerous dryer balls and gave them for gifts. In fact I bought ten packages of the brown yarn and a few natural. The brown felts the best and looks very nice. I put six balls of dryer balls in a package. Everyone loves them and they hold up well. I have used my own dryer balls for more than a year. I have nine children and that's a lot of laundry. The dryer balls are in great condition and doing their job nicely. I will continue to purchase this yarn for my dryer ball gifts. You will get almost five balls out of one package (skein) of the yarn. Your dryer balls should weigh 1.3 ounces on a digital scale. I eyeball it now as I have made soooo many. I will make these in the car as we travel. Thanks for bringing us a great product.

Color: Natural Verified Purchase
I don't like acrylics or other synthetics for sweaters. The Fishermen's yarn is just a perfect 4 ply, worsted weight like we used to get when we bought yarn. It still has it's lanolin content so it's easy to knit with and retains it's warmth when the garment gets wet.
Couldn't ask for better -- and the 8 oz. skein is great for minimizing joinings.

Color: Oatmeal Verified Purchase
It's only fair to note that I've not worked with 100% wool that wasn't superwash before. I ordered two skeins of oatmeal to make my husband a cabled hat and scarf set. What I received was much thinner than what I would expect of something described as "bulky"- it felt thinner than typical worsted. I decided to double it since I had 2 skeins and I used size 11 needles- (I knit on the tight side.) The result was the very dense, warm product I desired. Working with it felt rougher than I was used to but not prohibitive. The finished piece is softer than I thought it would be but not too soft. There have been lots of compliments on the finished product. It looks good on my husband and the color matched his khaki pants well. For the money, the skeins are very large. I think this would be a good choice for a masculine project and it took the cables well. I was expecting it to be thicker.

Color: Brown Heather Verified Purchase
I found this yarn at our local craft store a while back and when I was ready to purchase some for a sweater, I was disappointed to find out they no longer carried it. This is a soft wool that knits up beautifully. The ply thickness is consistent and doesn't tend to split while you are working with it like some yarns do. Highly recommend this wool. Excellent quality for a reasonable price.

Color: Maple Tweed
I have used two different colors of this yarn to knit two very different men's scarves. The first one, which I have finished, looks really good. I used the birch tweed color and held two strands together, using size 11 needles. The finished product is nice, but I was disappointed when I realized that the birch tweed is not 100% wool. I think all the other colors are all wool, but for some reason the birch tweed is only 78% wool. I guess I should have paid closer attention to the label, but I had looked at different colors and noted that the yarn was 100% wool, and did not expect that one particular color would be the exception to that rule.

The second second scarf I'm knitting is in nature's brown, which is a really pretty, chocolatey color. I'm using one strand and knitting with size 6 needles, so these are much smaller stitches. The yarn is pleasant enough to work with, especially for the price, although it is not particularly soft. BUT, not very far into the first skein there was a break that had been tied together. I could have lived with this, but the tie was ridiculous. Honestly, there was practically no yarn left on either end of the tie--just two little pieces of fuzz. I should have just stopped knitting, cut the yarn, and re-tied it, but I didn't--I just cursed. I guess I'll just pull the knot through to the wrong side and put Liquid Stitch on it. This yarn is made in China. Maybe Lion Brand should look for a U.S. manufacturer, but then I guess they'd have to charge about twice as much for it. Maybe the poor Chinese factory workers are trained to tie broken yarn so that they don't waste any yarn at all. Ridiculous! Lion Brand needs to get some kind of quality control on its Fishermen's Wool. And the color that is only 78% wool should have an obvious warning on the label that it's not all wool!
