The yarn knitted up very nicely and is soft but hard wearing.
I’ve not actually started knitting with this yarn yet, but I’ve used West Yorkshire Spinners yarn before with excellent results and another plus, it’s made in Yorkshire.
I am halfway through knitting a jacket for my daughter in ColourLab Dk, Electric Blue. Knits up well with clear, difined stitch pattern. I'm also going to knit a tunic for myself in Illustrious Dk, Claret. Have knitted the tension swatch so far, and know already it promises to be a wonderful knitting experience. Beautifully soft and luxurious 70% Falkland wool and 30% Alpaca. I think the Alpaca gives the yarn a silky feel for wearing next to the skin. Thank you, once again Deramores, for providing excellent quality and prompt service in these difficult times!
