Product details

The wonder of Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool is its natural fibres, and natural lanolin which make this yarn pretty much waterproof! Perfect for chunky sweaters and accessories, this yarn has fantastic stitch definition so it will bring out your cables and stitch patterns beautifully. The colour palette includes solids, tweeds and heathers, all undyed, so that you could dye this yarn if you wanted; you could felt it - and it is a fantastic yarn to use for homeware. Cushions and blankets look absolutely stunning in this natural yarn. Aran weight, this yarn will knit up on 5.5mm needles, or crochet on a 5mm hook. Please note: Birch Tweed (202) is not 100% wool and skein size is different. It is 170g and 318m. It is also made of 78% Pure Virgin Wool,13% Acrylic,9% Rayon.

This is just the best workhorse yarn at by far the best price point — over 400 yards of 100% wool — a fabulous value!! I have knit one blanket with it with two strands to make it speedy quick. A sampler blanket is next. But it really is nice enough for garments as well. I just love the natural shades and am using 3 for the blanket.

Recent critical review

The yarn has a horrible artificial scent like the worst kind of air freshener or drier sheets, just awful and fakey. The yarn feels lovely, soft and squishy and soft from the lanolin, but that fake smell gave me a terrible headache. Under that awful disgusting headache making smell is the divine beautiful scent of the natural lanolin, but I've had to take apart the skeins and keep them on the balcony for weeks to clear the awful disgusting yucky very very bad artificial fragrance that they doused it in. It got into the other yarn in my order too, but that cleared with just a week on the balcony. Once it's cleared from the Fisherman's Wool I'll be able to bring it indoors without a headache and use it, but I will never ever order Lion Brand again. Yeccchhh.
