A lovely quality of yarn. It's a bit finer than I'm used to, but it works up very well and is extremely forgiving if you need to rip out. The stitch definition is excellent too. My only complaint is that the actual colour saturation is MUCH darker. It looks NOTHING like the image, and this is taking into consideration screen monitor differences etc. I was hoping for something very much like shown, but instead have a dark teal base with dark maroon hits. It's very deceptive and as a result, I've had to attempt many different patterns in order to compliment the wool's hues and saturations. This has been extremeky trying and frustrating, which has been very disappointing. But the QUALITY of the wool/yarn is truly wonderful. Soft and forgiving, and an absolute pleasure to knit. In the end, I'd offer a higher rating, if it wasn't for the colour issue, which really was very surprising.
Douce et très facile à tricoter
J’adore la texture et le soyeux de cette laine. Elle se tricote comme un charme!
La laine bis-sock coccinelle est ma laine autorayante préférée des laines Bicotte pour réaliser des bas. La laine est douce et chaude. Succès assuré lorsque offerts en cadeau.
