I do a lot of crochet for a charity and I wanted a relatively cheap yarn. This is perfect for all the baby items I make. It is soft and a really good thickness. I will definitely be purchasing more. (Posted on 10/11/2021)

Like a good old fashioned dk
I have been knitting for 60+ years and yarn seems to be getting thinner as the years go by. The dk today is more like a 4 ply would have been in the 60s.
However Emu Classic is like the old fashioned dk that I remember and it is lovely and soft. I am using it for a collar on a cotton/acrylic poncho and I am sure it will be just right, no itchiness or rubbing.
I would be happy to use this on jumpers for my toddler grandson. There is lots of colour choice and is a very good price so his mum wouldn’t have to worry about it being in the wash every 5 minutes.

Quality varies from one ball to the next
I'm using this as part of one of the kits bought from here. It's so varied in quality, you can have one lovely ball then the next is awfully splitty and annoying. I'm having to redo one in every 3 or 4 stitches as it keeps splitting. Much prefer Stylecraft for a similar price. Won't buy this myself in future (Posted on 19/09/2021)
Love it..
Wasn't sure at first - but have decided that for the price - and the way it works up - i now love this yarn! (Posted on 28/08/2021)

Beautiful and easy to work with.
I found it absolutely gorgeous to work with. I knit mainly for charities mainly toys,pet toys and blankets and so much more. The colours are bright and fresh lovely finish on items. (Posted on 05/08/2021)
So pleased to see an Emu revival. Such a pleasure to knit with, really soft with good stitch definition- just makes me want to keep knitting AND I should learn to crochet.
Best yarn I’ve used in a long time. Excellent price, wash ability and so soft to use. Have knitted toys, baby cardigans, children’s jumpers and baby blankets. Good alrounder. Now I need to learn how to crochet. (Posted on 05/08/2021)
Enjoyable knitting experience
I found this wool be very pleasant with which to knit. I used the yellow, blue and the pink. All knitted up very pleasing baby garments that made lovely gifts that were much appreciated by the mum’s (Posted on 05/08/2021)
Fantastic soft yarn that goes on forever.
Lovely colours for every possible garment (Posted on 05/08/2021)
Very soft, easy to work with, keeps it's shape and of course good value for money.
Very soft wool to knit with and is comfortable to handle. I knitted children's jumper and cardigan. Really good value for money as it knitted up well and washes well without losing its shape or colour. All for a great price ???? (Posted on 05/08/2021)

Amazingly soft and so so easy to knit with. Love it (Posted on 05/08/2021)
A wonderful array of colours, a positive rainbow and oh so soft. Perfect for my darling grandchildren. Everything I want in a yarn
The colours are bright and beautiful, wonderful choice for any project. The yarn is so soft, making it the perfect option for baby knits. This is just what you want. I couldn't be happier with this product (Posted on 05/08/2021)
I was surprised how good this was. Very soft and so easy to knit with. I am new to shopping online for knitting wool and this was very good I will definitely buy more. The colours were very true to the photo as well. (Posted on 05/08/2021)
it is great
Its a blast from the past good quality and beautiful colours (Posted on 05/08/2021)
Really impressed
Really impressed with this wool, it’s so soft and knits up beautifully. Would buy again (Posted on 05/08/2021)
Ok for the price
Emu have produced a fine colour palette in their Classic DK, however, the old adage 'you get what you pay for' is key here. It's very 'splitty' which slows you down a lot, there's joins - some really noticeable knots and fuzzy patches. Once you've worked around those faults it does the job and for under £2 it makes a decent choice if you're watching your pennies (Posted on 05/08/2021)
Beautiful yarn. Will buy shsin
I hadn't heard the name Emu wool for many many years, but wanted to check it out. Very soft hsrn. Lovely colour range, but we always want more don't we. Very soft and great for baby and children's knits or crochet, which I do a lot of. (Posted on 05/08/2021)
Great value and easy to knit with.
Fantastic value for the price. The yarn is soft and it knits and washes well knitted jumpers for my grandchildren and they like the smoothness of the garments. (Posted on 05/08/2021)
