Darnie good wool!

A light, tough lambswool that's easy to knit with! This wool feels tougher in the skein than it is when knitted - the finished garment was soft, no scratchy yarn here! The label suggests 2.25-3.25mm needles - I found 3.25 to be perfect (but i'm a tense knitter! 😁). The skein is ~410m, and I made a 4purl 2knit beanie with it (3 inch brim - no skimping!) with loads left over. The colours are as in the shop photos - the tweed fleck is muted and complementary rather than bright and insistent (a good thing, I feel!). The finished beanie was warm and soft (not bulky, a lovely weight for Spring weather). Time will tell how stretchy it gets. Definitely would buy this again.

Gorgeous in Green

Great yardage. Bright colour. A little heavier than most fingering. Loving it!


One of my favourite yarns. I have 3 projects done and the fourth (not the last!) is on my needles now. I love its rustic look and how soft it feels.
