Great for men's gifts! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This yarn is manly enough for a man's scarf or hat, but soft and warm enough to be an everyday accessory all winter long. Looking at the picture, I thought it would be difficult to knit with, but it wasn't at all! As you work with the yarn it gets softer, but still keeps that manly rough look.

Beautiful tweedy yarn 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I've really enjoyed working with this yarn. It's lightweight, but has a warm texture to it. The colors are lovely and the feel is fabulous! I highly recommend it.
