Overall Burly Spun Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 5 reviews)

Good for cold weather hats and scarves 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
beautiful color,one skein with knots, other three fine. Sheds a bit but overall a long seed stitch scarf is perfect.

great for felting 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Just completed a felted cloche in this yarn-knit it on size 15 needles and then machine felted. It took two cycles for the perfect felt-not much bleeding and came out a thick, warm winter hat. Easy to knit,soft and beautiful colors. Will do it again

This is wonderful yarn, easy to work with and beautiful in color. It is exactly what I looking for in the garment I am making with it. Jimmy Beans Wool shipped it quickly and it arrived before I had even purchased the correct needle size.

Soft natural-looking bulky yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Burlyspun is a wonderfully smooth single-ply wool yarn. I saw it in my local yarn store, and couldn't stop scrunching my fingers into the skeins. The wool is surprisingly soft and has a lot of spring. It knits up beautifully - thick, not a ton of drape. The wrapper suggests size 13 needles; I think Jimmy Beans' information (size 15) might work better. I am making a large blanket out of this yarn. For projects, figure 300 square inches per skein in garter stitch.
