Ball Undersized 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
Last year I ordered four different colors of this yarn for a pattern designed specifically for this yarn. One of the balls seemed smaller than the others. Well, I thought I must be imagining it since I've never had this happen before, but now, 6 rows from finishing my project, I've run out of this color, but not the other three. So beware if this happens to you.I didn't report it at the time, and now I'm having to order another ball. Otherwise, I enjoyed working with the yarn, although the thick/thin aspect of it gives the Fair Isle pattern a very rustic appearance.

Love this yarn! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
The colors are subtle but not muddy. The yarn works up beautifully in stranded color work and has a light halo when blocked. I hope they produce more colors.

These small balls of yarn are perfect for Fair Isle and anywhere small bits of yarn are need. Wish more chooses were available.

If only I could knit everything with..... 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
.....Rowan Fine Tweed. I absolutely love Fine Tweed! I am a junkie for it! I love the traditional wooly look and texture of it. The color selection is dreamy and it knits up beautifully!
