Thank you so much for sending this beautiful yarn! I love it. I've got a few other bits to knit atm (anither grandbaby in the way) but I'm so looking forward to getting into this gorgeous yarn before next winter time. . It's actually going to be a jumper for myself.
I am knitting a bear and am using West Yorkshire spinners fleece in combination with Roman kid silk haze which gives soft toy a fluffy look. Yorkshire fleece is an extremely strong wool, excellent to work with and keeps its shape after knitting. I am happy with it.
This is a lovely yarn to work with and the finished product is so lovely. This is my second order of this wool and I would not hesitate to order again.
WYS yarn is a favourite of mine, knits easy, lovely soft feel to the end product. There is no splitting of the yarn, silky feel as the yarn passes over the fingers. The colours of the yarn is lively colour pinging from the knitted piece. Blue Leicester sheep are a fav of mine
Such soft snuggly yarn, I haven't cast on yet but can't wait to! Thank you Sharon, you are always so kind and efficient.
