    Best Wool for Punch Needle

    Posted by Ashlee on Aug 3rd 2020

    Absolutely wonder to touch and work with. I used it for my punch needle commission, and it was perfect to work with. Great price for the quality and the color is perfect. Images are true to the real color. Can't wait to buy more!

    Good quality yarn in a variety of colors.

    The yarn is of a very good quality. Soft and well woven. Easy to knit. I am making a project that combines my existing mohair yarn with this wool yarn. I was happy to find the exact match in color and weight. The price is reasonable. I was happy with the store that does not charge for shipping.

    Best yarn ever for hats! Have made so many with this yarn. Good stitch definition and very warm. Yarn is great to work with no splitting perfect for project with cables. Also just used on some Fair Isle projects.

    This is exceptional wool at a more than reasonable price. Beautiful colors and texture. Used for hats this time around, but will purchase again for some bigger projects in the future.

    This is an exceptional value. Lots of colors. Used for color work mittens this time but coming back for sweater quantity in the new year.

    Very soft

    Very soft, lovely yarn. A little bit closer to sport weight than worsted, but otherwise worth it.

    Shepherd's Wool worsted spun fine wool is a pleasure to work with. The stitches are well-defined and the yarn is easy to handle. The Fuchsia I ordered is exquisitely intense. I'm glad I was directed to this yarn.
