I bought the WYS Country Birds Wood Pigeon and the WYS Liquorice (black) as a gift for a friend. My friends loves Fair Isle patterns and is always making things for others. The lovely colours in Wood Pigeon are colours she wears, and the WYS sock yarn is a fantastic yarn to work with and to wear, so whatever my friend decides to use her yarn for, it will be beautiful. 😊
Highly recommend - the lovely colours and pattern make it lots of fun to knit. Great quality yarn.
