Update on earlier review

It’s a wonder to knit with, too. It feels nice on the hands.

The sweater I’m knitting with Tudors is soft and full of tonal variation that looks rich and interesting as I go along. The yarn has a nice twist and is uniform throughout the skein, no knots or thin spots. The only quibble is that one skein had one spot where the dye didn’t saturate completely. I was able to hide that boo boo on the back side of a cable though.

Gorgeous yarn!

The photo is true to colour, at least on my iPad. Deep tones of russet and brown with slightly lighter dark red streaks look rich and fairly consistent across the 3 skeins I bought. The yarn itself is smooshy springy with a nice strong twist. It seems soft enough to wear next to the skin which is my plan.

Deep color!

This is a deep shade of brown, with a warm tone that makes it stand out!
