Lovely quality wool

I am still in the process of knitting up my Alana cabled jumper, but the wool is so soft and responsive, I can't wait to wear it come the winter. I bought it with a special offer so was very pleased at the price as well. The delivery was prompt, although Hermes sent incorrect messages which was confusing.

Bought two shades of West Yorkshire Spinners The Croft Shetland Tweed Aran Wool to knit Noro’s Sequence Blanket. Haven’t yet used but it looks and feels perfect. Deramore’s website makes it easy to see the yarn and to choose well. I’m always happy with Deramore’s.
