    This is by far the best yarn that I have had the pleasure of using. It creates a beautiful, rustic fabric but also lives up to it’s name and is so soft. I will definitely be back for some more.

    Great aran weight yarn, it starts of feeling a bit rough but wears in beautifully, becoming soft to the touch after wearing in, perfect for warm chunky hats, gloves and socks
