I love the look and feel of this wool but find it difficult to knit with as it’s is so slippery. Also, I found, trying to knit with the thinnest part of the wool on large needles is so hard that I kept dropping stitches. I’ve given up for now but will have another try.
I can’t fault the knitting network for their service and delivery though they are excellent.

Read prior to purchasing FASHION item for Summer
This would not suit a beginner and the reviews are informative: use wooden rather than metal needles, practise before considering buying in bulk, the colours are beautiful, the tension fortunately is given above. I only tried a small piece. I love to experiment so might try adding another compatible yarn to it and make decorative summery items. FULL MARK AS A FASHION ITEM.
Back to my winter blankets.

Beautiful Yarn
I ordered this on Friday and it arrived on Monday, exceptional delivery time.
Started to knit this yarn, which I love, on metal needles and found it slipping a lot, so this morning have changed to bamboo needles and it is far easier on these needles.
Hope this helps anyone who is ordering opium. It knits up quickly and looks lovely.

Purchased this wool in the sale. I knit a lot of scarves at this time of the year and this is perfect. Even simple stocking stitch looks more complicated as it knits up. Arrived quickly and perfectly wrapped as usual. Would recommend it . (Posted on 23/08/2020)
