Belle expérience

Soft donnegal est une laine très agréable à tricoter par sa douceur et rondeur. Le masin est très réactif pour l envoi y compris pour un complément de 2 pelotes trouvées de même bain. Je recommande chaleureusement et si vos pas vous mènent dans cette merveilleuse région n hésitez pas à leur rendre visite.


I love the texture of this merino wool. It's soft and not at all itchy-scratchy like some other wools. It is nice to knit with too. However I didn't realise that the "hank" or twisty thing that it comes in has to be unwound carefully into a ball before commencing knitting. I only discovered this after googling and looking at Youtube videos. It took me several hours to unravel the twisted mess I'd made.

This was lovely wool to knit with. It did not split and knit up beautifully.

Haven't started my project with this wool yet, but I'm looking forward to using it as it feels really good and the colours are great.

I just started my first ever sweater using soft donegal in 'gold' and 'bainin' and already can't wait to wear it. Knitting is easy and the wool is really nice to the touch.
