Overall Shepherd Sport Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 184 reviews)

Lovely Wool but one problem 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
This is the second time I have purchased Lorna's Laces here and both times the wool did not disappoint. I did come across one small issue tho while winding it. There was a knot in the strand about 3/4 of the way in. I expect to find knots when I am purchasing sale items or discount, but not when I am spending over $20 a skein with exchange and shipping, closer to $40ea!. A yarn of this quality should not contain knots as far as I'm concerned. Otherwise pleased with the product.

I love this yarn! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This yarn is perfect! It's soft and supple and knits up like a dream. I have to go through my patterns to find something else to make, just so I can buy more!

Exquisite 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
The Violet is kissed with a hint of blue. The yarn feels like silk and is easy to handle...with the most incredible drape and sheen. It splits easily but is worth the inconvenience.
