Product details

The wonder of Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool is its natural fibers, and natural lanolin which make this yarn pretty much waterproof! Perfect for bulky sweaters and accessories, this yarn has fantastic stitch definition so it will bring out your cables and stitch patterns beautifully. The color palette includes solids, heathers and tweed shades, 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. Worsted weight, this yarn will knit up on US 9 (5.5mm) needles, or crochet on a H (5.00mm) hook. Please note: Birch Tweed (202) is not 100% wool and skein size is different. It is 6 oz and 348 yards. 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.
