Left Feeling Ambivalent 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
This yarn sort of pisses me off. From the colors and descriptions on the internet, as well as the price, you expect a soft, luxurious wool/silk blend. I feel that this yarn is extremely rustic and unfinished which is fine for me as I enjoy that. There's a lot of lanolin left in it, which is also fine for me as it softens as you knit. What makes me sort of angry is that the color is washed out- it looks like someone spilled food coloring on the sheep and tried to scrub it off- making the Straw colorway a dulled orange rather than the vibrant yellow you see in the picture. I think if I had expected a country knit type rustic yarn I would have been much happier with this product. If that's what you're looking for, I recommend it. For more refined, chic knits, go with something like Madelinetosh or Dream in Color and avoid this altogether.
