So soft 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Love that this yarn has an ultra natural feel and look. I'm using it to make some Fairy Castles for my mom for Christmas. Can't wait to see how it's felts up. :

Beautiful, SO Soft, Love It! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
My first project with this yarn is a pair of cabled mitts or fingerless gloves. The yarn is so very soft (the blue faced leicester) you would never know it was 100% wool. I had to take a few rows out (got carried away and knit more rows than I needed) with no problems in ripping out and then re-knitting correctly. I had ordered the other colors in shades of brown. I love that these are the natural shades of wool from the sheep and the label gives you photos and descriptions of the different yarns. I used 2 skeins for a pair of mitts and had enough left over where I could have made them longer than the 4" cabled cuff on the arm if I had wanted to. Knits true to gauge. And again I can't get over the softness, ease of knitting, not the least bit rough or scratchy next to the skin (in the BFL selections - almost has a silky feel to it). The creams and browns are SO pretty together - have another pattern for wrist warmers with a Norwegian pattern (colorwork) that is next on my list. Very pretty, natural, neutral colors that will go with everything you have to wear them with - and if gifting - you can cut out the part of the label with the info on that particular sheep. Very, very pretty finished project, very happy with this yarn (wish I could write the sheep a thank you note), love the natural look of the colors! Will make more of these for gifts knowing they will feel almost like a luxury yarn next to the skin. Am anxious to try more patterns and projects with this yarn in the DK wt. and also the bulky. As wonderfully nice as this yarn is - you really can't go wrong with the price either.
