Overall Big Wool Rating: 4.2 out of 5 stars (4.2 based on 24 reviews)

Big Wool, Big Fun 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I usually don't knit with yarns that are heavier than worst weight. I just don't like knitting with big needles. My daughter saw a cowl pattern that called for chunky weight yarn. So I bought Rowan Big Wool. I love the spongy spring of the wool. It knit up to a soft warm cowl. I would buy Big Wool again for chunky weight projects.

4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I have made many beanies out of this yarn and it is the yarn I gave to my son and daughter when they were learning how to knit. Big needles and big wool made things easier and the results are so fast that it kept their interest to the end. I am now making a jacket and find the yarn to be very soft and nice to use. Great stitch definition and QUICK! I would not hesitate to use it again for big wool projects.

Good but..... 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
Generally liked this yarn as it knits up quickly with good stick definition, but it is a little scratchy. I made a coat so it was fine, but I would be hesitant to use for something close to my skin.
