Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport Yarn - WendyKnits Sunrise Reviews

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport Yarn - WendyKnits Sunrise
WendyKnits Sunrise shown $14.00
Exceedingly soft with an uncharacteristic sheen, you will hardly believe that Shepherd Sport is 100% wool, let alone superwash! Perfect for lightweight garments and accessories, this sumptuous yarn is a dream to work with, easy to care for, and available in a wide-ranging palette of vibrant hues.

The color Go, Sandy, Go was created in honor of a very special JBW family/staff member, Sandy! In the fall of 2014, Sandy underwent chemo to address her recurrent cancer, and Lorna's was generous enough to dye up the gorgeous shade of peachy pink, the color endometrial cancer support, to help us raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Both Jimmy Beans Wool and Lorna's Laces are donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this color in any Lorna's Laces yarn to Cast of Chemo!, a fiber-arts based charity that helps to "fund research that will end the need for chemotherapy in breast cancer treatment and, ultimately, cure potentially all cancers."

Beauchamps and Frasier 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
These yarns are beautifully dyed and the colors are deep and rich. The yarn is soft and springy and fun to work with. I haven't run into any knots but there have been a few spots where the spit joint is obvious and the yarn is loose and sloppy. My project is mostly in garter stitch so it's not a huge deal but if I were making something with a more defined stitch, I would be angry. Overall a great yarn.
