Lovely to work with

Great range of colours, lovely to work with. Still a work in progress so can't comment on finished product yet. Staff in This is Knit are so helpful. Thank you

Colour was not cream

I ordered the cream colour and it is more like a dirty cream. Didn’t like the shade of colour.

Such a soft yarn!

Made a bonnet with this yarn and it is just perfect! The yarn itself is soft and feels great to touch. I did have to hold the yarn double to meet my gauge on 4.5mm needles though (it may just be that I’m a tight knitter).

Good Price and Quick Shipment

Hard to find this yarn in the color I needed to finish my project. This is Knit had it and at a better price than one other vendor. The shipping was fast especially considering it was shipped from overseas.


I am very happy with the wool I got recommend by the staff in the shop.
