Fantastic wool to work with.
I am crocheting a blanket and using 4 different colours. The pattern specified chunky, but I opted for Aran to make it a little more light-weight. I usually try to use yarn that has some wool in it, but decided to try something different this time, and I am glad I did. The wool is really easy to work with. In a previous project, the wool (from a different supplier) just knotted if you looked at it wrong! This wool is soft, easy to use and knits up really well. My only comment is that the shades are different and far more vibrant than in the photos. This could be down to my laptop display, but this particular shade is more a dark teal colour, which is exactly what I wanted. I had to return a ball, as it really wasn't matching with what I wanted, but it was very easy to do so and a replacement was quickly dispatched. The refund was quick and I couldn't be happier with the service and product. (Posted on 10/04/2022)
Soft and easy
I enjoyed making a cardigan in mocha. It worked up lovely and the end result is soft and not itchy. It’s a beautiful colour too. Very good value and quality. (Posted on 01/05/2021)
Good yarn
I ordered this yarn in Pomegranate not sure if it was the shade I wanted for a hat and am so pleased with it, it crochets up perfectly, feels good and the colour is exactly what I wanted, thank you. (Posted on 22/02/2021)

Cornish blue for my Cornish Dad
The Cornish Blue Aran was a lovely colour, nice definition shown on the stitch when crochet my first ever item of clothing. My dad was rather chuffed to receive his hand made cardigan. The feel of the yarn was lovely to work with, minimal squeak on the hook. No knots in the skein, used 6 to make an XL size.

Looking forward to placing another order when I have a go at making my own cardigan / jumper.

I'm impressed!
For the price I was very impressed with the quality of this Aran yarn - it knitted up beautifully with a very good stitch definition.

Excellent delivery service too......

Excellent value and beautifully soft
Very easy to knit with and goes a long way. The colours are brighter than the colour chart suggests. I first ordered the Empire and it was far too vivid, so ordered Cornish Blue and that was perfect for my twin granddaughters' Disney 'Frozen' cardigans. 5 balls was plenty to knit the 2
cable front cardigans, so very economical.

I ordered a range of colours to knit a blanket...soft, lovely to knit with and the bright colours made me smile just during past few weeks. (Posted on 23/05/2020)
Lovely colour and weight. Knits up well and looks great as an aran sweater. (Posted on 18/08/2019)
Good yarn
When worked up, it is soft and doesn't split. I personally don't like the wooly feel I get from the yarn. All in all a good yarn, but I will probably not use it again. (Posted on 27/06/2019)

Soft and reliable
Love using this Stylecraft Special Aran yarn. It has a lovely soft feel, that I love to knit scarves with. I always get a pleasing result. (Posted on 17/05/2019)
What a nice soft easy yarn to work with. Great definition for aran type jumpers, very warm to wear and just sheer pleasure in all ways if i am totally honest! Great for kids and adults stuff, toys too. Yarn is a tight twist so not easily split, very soft on the hands when working with it. Fully recommend this yarn, you can't get better for the price of it, Give it a whirl, you will be very happy with the results! (Posted on 09/05/2019)
