Rustic but with luxury. Colour palette is excellent, meterage is brilliant. Perfect for colourwork patterns as fibres grip well but I would advise sewing up any side seams in a stronger yarn if pattern isn’t in the round. Soft as an individual strand but robust yet comfortable and warm as a knitted fabric. Wears well. Looks and feels like quality heritage item. Handwashes and blocks beautifully. Not a beginner level yarn due to its need for even regular tension, no over tightening nor yanking! Several projects completed in this since its launch and keep coming back for more.

Recent critical review

I was very disappointed with this yarn, it is nowhere near as soft as I was expecting, given it's fibre content, and I found it rather stiff to knit. It is also rather knobbly, but not in a softly slubby way, so stitch definition is poor and tension looks uneven, even when it actually isn't. I won't buy it again
