This yarn is durable, versatile, lovely to work with
I'm currently knitting a cabled jumper in the grey Athena. The yarn is soft and feels lovely to knit with. Because it's a cotton, the cabled design is knitting up exceptionally well. It has a lovely texture and the yardage goes a long way. It's lightweight but as it's a chunky weight, feels warm. Although I'm knitting a ladies jumper I think this yarn would also work well when crocheted. (Posted on 04/11/2021)
Works up beautifully no splitting slides over hook easily (Posted on 04/11/2021)
Lovely colours and really soft
Lovely to knit with. Most importantly it doesn't split when knitting with it.
Great variety of colours and has a beautiful soft texture.
Was very please with this yarn, I usually stick to yarns I have used before but was very impressed and glad I tried this yarn.Also it washes really well as my knitted garment really kept it shape and there was not shrinkage or bobbling.
Over all I was pleasantly surprised and really glad I tried this new yarn.

Very good and pleasing result
Very nice to work with and knits up to look very smooth looking. (Posted on 04/11/2021)
Excellent quality. Lovely knitted up. Pleasure to knit with.
I loved knitting with this wool. I made a toddlers hoodie with it, shade Shadow.
It has a lovely soft texture when knitted up.
It knits up really fast, I did find to be finer than some chunky yarns and used 4.5 and 5.5 needles as the vintage pattern I used stated.
As it is anti piling it showed off the pattern definition excellently.
I also bought shade Sand which I have yet to use but I would definitely buy it again.

I have just started knitting my Gt Grandson a jumper using this wool. I love it. It feels soft and lovely to knit, the fact that it is anti Pilling is an absolute bonus.
As above. Love this wool (Posted on 04/11/2021)

More like a DK -
I did the tension sample with the stated needles and it was a little loose so will go down a size, I have a project to finish before I go onto this chunky knit hopefully it will turn out ok (Posted on 04/11/2021)

This yarn feels lovely to work with however I would say it’s more comparable to Aran yarn. (Posted on 22/10/2021)
Beautiful wool the colours and the feel of the wool is amazing and you know its good when it just glides off yr crochet hook with no added pressure or no fraying in the wool very good choice one very happy customer.

Lovely chunky yarn. Can recommend.
I bought the Bobble Hat kit, which included the rose and sand Athena Select Chunky yarns and the knitting pattern. At the same time, I ordered some other colours (Soft mint, shadow and soft grey) to make more hats. Lovely selection of muted colours. I was spoilt for choice, and would have loved to have bought more colours. (Posted on 22/10/2021)
