I cannot stress enough how beautiful this yarn is. Its so bright and colourful and the self striping is almost a miracle !. I made myself a big wrap for winter (crochet), it took two weeks only and works so well. I am now looking at tops for my other half in one of the other shades. If you have never tried this wool you will love it. There is a silky sheen to the finished garment as well which gives it a soft luxurious feel.

I am self-learning crochet from online tutorials. I was using some cheaper yarn and it was very scratchy. I bought this as a mid-priced alternative and the difference it has made is phenomenal. It glides off my hooks so that my technique is a lot better. It is very soft. As others have said it is a tad 'bitty' in that if you pull it apart it will fray because it is so soft. I found that this made my finished pieces look a bit fluffy and used by the time I finished them because I wasn't careful when handling them. Also it is difficult to to go back unravel as it is very fine so the fibres twist together and knot while unstitching. I am only doing single and double stitches though so barely have to unravel so this isn't a problem I really faced. I can do one child sized scarf as per photo from one ball if doing double crochet. As I'm new to the craft I find it hard to gauge how much wool I need which is why I mention this. Other people have mentioned there are too many joins. I had one join near the centre of one ball and in the second one I haven't had any joins at all. In the third one I am halfway through and haven't found any joins. I think there has to be joins due to the nature of the product. Some of my friends use warping boards to dye their own self striping yarn and it is a laborious process. They would waste a lot of yarn matching the colours up before they join it. The one joining knot I did have was done in a slip knot and was very easily undone and did not affect what I was doing as I just matched the colour further on. Overall I'm very impressed with this yarn and will be buying more in other colours.

Really disappointed. The wool itself is lovely, but every ball was full of joins of wool which did not match and so there were sudden changes in colour which either meant a glaring change in colour in my items...or having to continually cut sections of wool out and join elsewhere. Overall it meant much of the wool was wasted and the strength of the items is reduced due to the number of knotted joins. In one ball of wool I counted 5 separate joins!?! This completely ruined the lovely gradient change of colours advertised. Would not recommend.

I love this yarn, it is very special when made up, try not to make any mistakes becsuse it does not undo very well, delivered in good time and well packed ( flat so it fitted in the letter box).

Stunning! Great to crochet with, very easy to see stitches that's its actually helped me to understand crocheting better as I can actually see where my stitches are and which stitch I am supposed to be working on, as opposed to other cheaper wool that splits easily. I have not long been doing crochet and I am slowly finding out that the better the wool/yarn quality the better it is to work with. I will definetely be buying cygnet boho spirit yarns again, my new favourite!

Such beautiful wool, silky and soft . I orderd four balls which made a beautiful Pram blanket and some baby items for a friend . Will definitely order this again due to the high quality and beautiful colours.
The item pictured was crocheted .

Lovely yarn if a little 'splitty' but would buy again for the vibrant colour and soft feel.
