I love this yarn. I’ve never used it before I received my order for this yarn review – when I knit bulky, I don’t usually head for a wool and mohair blend. I usually don’t like mohair for myself, but this yarn changed my mind.

Texture

The texture of this yarn is softer than it looks, and it’s stronger than many wool and mohair blends. Throughout working with it, the yarn never pilled or split, not when I knitted it on a tight gauge, and not when I crocheted it either.

Colors

I had the opportunity to play with 4 shades of this yarn: Blue Boy, Deep Pine, Blue Suede, and Persian Peacock. This line of yarn is available in over 50 stunning shades, so I can guarantee they have a shade you need for a project.

Swatching

Sometimes, I don’t feel like making a swatch square. Sometimes, I feel like testing a new yarn by making a small accessory, like these Freedom Mittens, designed by The Lonely Sea. They knitted up in a snap – I made a pair in one evening without a problem. It’s a simple pattern that focuses on stocking stitch, which shows off the yarn. For these mittens, I used the shade Blue Boy, and I crocheted on an edge with the Deep Pine shade.

The verdict

I didn’t think I would like this yarn as much as I do. It’s strong and versatile, and it’s got a huge range of shades in this bulky weight line. I have friends in Alaska that would love this yarn for its bulky weight, generous yardage (124 yards per skein), and snuggle factor. Bonus: these skeins have a built in center pull, no need to re-ball this yarn!

I’ll be knitting and crocheting with this yarn for a long time to come, and you can bet that my family will be receiving gifts made with this gorgeous and snuggly yarn – sshh, don’t tell them! Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride is a great choice for winter accessories, and it would also be a fantastic choice for a winter blanket.
