Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport Yarn - Cermak Reviews

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport Yarn - Cermak
Cermak 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."

Nice yarn and very economical 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
This is a great yarn for the price. It's not as lush as the high end brands, but it's soft, not too scratchy and very nice to work with. The colorway is evenly dyed. I would highly recommend it.

Camo hats 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
Over all very nice yarn and coloring for the projects I'm working on. Need to be a little more careful with pointy needles - splitting is fairly easy to do.
