You didn't have as many skeins of the color I wanted so you took the time to call me and then helped me figure out which color I should substitute. This yarn knits up so beautifully for baby blankets. I have made six of them now.
I love this yarn. It knits up so nice for baby blankets. It swaddles the baby when wrapped in it. I make them for my granddaughter's children. So glad that it is still available!
I bought this yarn to finish a baby blanket after getting 4 cakes on sale at a store that was closing. It is high quality yarn but not very soft. Hoping after the first wash the yarn will get softer.
The yarns feel great and I am sure they will fill even better once the socks are knitted.
Service was excellent.
This yarn comes in soft baby colors that I love. I’ve made quite a few baby gifts with it because it’s so soft and washable. I had no idea you were located in Jackson and plan to come and meet you when I get home in the spring!
