  • Review from Joann: "OK, WONDERFUL yardage for the money. That's pretty much where the love ends here. I found in just a single skein several knots and broken plies, thin spots, and odd (what's this sorts of color blobs). Yes, its *natural*, but the quality here is a little lacking. My finished shawl is going to take a lot of work to block into softness and wearabilty. (A little bit more money and you could get something MUCH softer.) Defnitely not a next-to-the-skin wool. Thinnish for a wosted weight. I imagine this would be great for felting however, and I love the natrual color range."
