lovely soft yarn in a beautiful medium tone--I'm going to knit a sweater out of it
My yarn came in a Hank and arrived quickly from Canada. From the moment you unwind the Hank, it's very clear where the beginning and the ends are. Winding into a cake is effortless. The colors are brilliant and yarn is soft to the touch. I would recommend Biscotte Yarns to all types of knitters. I will be ordering again.
