This is not exactly as described - yes, there is the warning that the colours may vary from the photograph, but I have a pack of twenty balls of wool which has two balls of turquoise which are virtually indistinguishable, two balls of bright green also virtually the same and two balls of lilac which are exactly the same! Also, although this is described as Double Knitting I have at least two balls of 4 ply and one ball of chunky - these are no use for my current project as the weight and tension are quite important. The quality of the yarn is not good - some of it is stringy, some very coarse, and there are knots throughout some of the balls. This is a cheap pack of yarn imported from China, and although I hadn't expected top quality yarn at this price, I had expected something slightly better, so feel it is slightly overpriced for what it is.
It is suitable for craft work only - I'm making granny squares for a blanket and had run out of bright colours, so it'll do at a pinch, but if you are working on something where the tension is important, give this a miss. I would give this two and a half stars if I could, but as I can't I've marked it up rather than down.
On the good side - the delivery was quick despite being told it could take up to two weeks delivery (!)
