Rowan Big Wool has good quality and many colours. You can enjoy feeling soft and warm. In spite of bulky yarn, Kim Hargreaves realized to show off the beauty of women쳌fs body in CONSTANCE and TEPTATION, which are easy to knit. You can be a seductive lady only by wearing these garments. And I knitted Twinkle Stripes featured 쳌gVogueknitting쳌h Holiday issue in 2005, using Big Wool.

Pricey, but makes squishy, warm sweaters that are super quick to knit. I'm fairly sensitive to wool, but I have no trouble wearing this next to my skin. It does pill--however, I know that's the nature of merino wool.

This yarn is somewhat expensive, but worth it! Great quality yarn, and it keeps its quality for a long time. It's a very soft, yummy yarn. No complaints!

Soft and lofty, but this yarn does shed and pill. Also, the black bled on my hands and needles during the knitting process. Finished garment feels wonderful and Kim Hargreaves' patterns for this yarn are the best!
