TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 29 November 2013
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 (!)

Wool rubbish. Joins everywhere. May only be cheap but should be told about this in description.

These are not full size balls and are only suitable for little granny squares. Just be warned!

Its the second time I have brought these items, the various colours are great, the quality of the wool is good and they are an ideal size for myself to handle as I am new at my hobby, the wool has ended up looking lovely as a finished project, great item!

This product offers great value, although some of the balls seemed a bit thin and not sure they were double knitting

Some wool is cut into pieces. This makes it difficult and eve impossible for crocheting works..

Not what I expected with half very dull colours - not good when i was hoping to knit bright, striped things - also the wool itself is quite scratchy and not at all suitable for wearing next to the skin......

I agree with other comments, the feel of the yarn is weird and harsh, not soft and fluffy. Also, each of my balls had a label saying 4ply and suggested needle size 2.75-3.25mm, but it is definitely double knitting weight, so the labelling and needle size is totally wrong (although it is advertised as DK!). I was fairly lucky with colour variation, but I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for! Wouldn't buy again. Haven't knitted with it yet so don't know whether each ball has an uninterrupted length - I do hope it's OK, but feeling suspicious. Feel a bit misguided by overall 4 star rating.
