After 2 years..... 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
I loved this yarn also to knit with. My husband's chocolate brown sweater turned out beautiful and fit better than anything I ever did for him! However, the sweater is now 2 years old and the yarn has relaxed to the point that I just cut 2 out of each side and raised the shoulder seams. The ribbing is flat with no stretch. I bought some red for a sweater for myself and will definitely knit a smaller size than usual.

I wanted to be very negative about this yarn because I spent so much time picking little pieces of hay, straw or whatever it was out of each skein. In fact, I couldn't knit a single row without having to stop and pull something out of the fiber, and by the time I finished I swore to myself that I would never use this yarn again. With that said, I would absolutely use this yarn again. The finished sweater is lovely and it's probably my favorite project to date. I knitted a open cardigan called Summer Solstice and the Silky Wool gives it a nice drape and I like its slightly rustic look.

A Very Good Yarn 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
This is not my first experience with Silky Wool but I just have to say it is great stuff. Soft and with the heathered quality, enjoyable to work at. Some may not like the little bits of natural material that come in it varies from skein to skein but is easily removed- or left in. Either way, a pleasure to work with.
