Just gorgeous. It never disappoints!

I love ❤️ this yarn and it’s going to make my project just prefect. I was apprehensive because of a picture on a different website but “this is knit” had it right. Thanks!

Geraldine Moorkens Byrne
Excellent yarn

Soft and squishy and lovely to knit with, the colour was true to the image and in fact even nicer in reality. I used "mythical" in a jumper, and was delighted with the result. Will definitely purchase again

Beth Hollmann
Such lovely yarn!

I’ve been wanting to try Life in the Tall Grass’ sock yarn for quite some time, and my husband’s recent visit to Dublin was a great reason to place an order at TIK. I’ve started a shawl for a friend of mine, and the yarn is lovely to work with. It’s knitting up beautifully and is wonderfully soft. She’s going to love it.

Good customer service

I ran out of the Jade Grey colourway so ordered from Thisisknit. It arrived quickly and was well wrapped.

Gillian Ewing
Beautiful yarn!

Life in the Long Grass is a favourite yarn of mine after using it in a shawl recently - soft and with subtle colour mixes that turn out perfectly. A recent purchase not yet used is also for a shawl which reflects the colours of grasses local to LITLG headquarters and I look forward to making their Mist Shawl with it very soon. Amongst my top 5 choices for yarn.
