Beautiful yarn!Review by Anna

I was really impressed with the quality of this yarn. I made a toddlers item that knitted up so soft and cozy I wanted it! It has great stitch definition and could be worked on a range of needles to get different feels to the fabric. I used a mix of colours and loved how well they work together. (Posted on 03/03/2017)

I've knitted the 'justified shawl' from Elizabeth Felgate in lovely dark grey. What a very soft almost buttery yarn to knit with. It knitted nice up and it was a very great experience to knit with real casmere yarn. (Posted on 23/02/2017)

Although this Cashmere yarn is quite expensive, it definitely is a "you get what you pay for" as it is THE best. I knitted your pattern ('Twisted Stitcher' Cowl Pattern) which needs 2 balls and am extremely happy with the way it turned out. It is so comfy and warm and the Cobalt colour goes extremely well with denim. (Posted on 16/02/2017)

Thank you for this lovely wool. I have just finished making my scarf and I do not want to give it away! It is so soft and pretty and the pattern I used really bring out the colour. I love it. I will be back soon. (Posted on 23/01/2017)

This yarn is lovely to knit with and my hat is very soft. It is quite expensive so I was a bit nervous about it, but it is really worth it. I can't knit with it too often but when I have to make something special I will come back and buy more. (Posted on 15/12/2016)
My new favourite yarnReview by Sophie

I started out by making a grey scarf for my boyfriend and I fell in love with this yarn. It is so soft and quick to knit that I couldn't wait to finish the scarf and make something for myself. I have just finished my jumper and I love it. The colours are so rich and it is so warm and soft that I can't wait to use it again... Thank you (Posted on 13/10/2016)
