Eskimo is the best yarn for your felted project, or for those super quick bulky knits. We love it for hats and gloves especially, and think it makes an awesome felted purse.  With a great range of solids, mixes, and variegated colors, you'll be sure to find the perfect shade for your project in Eskimo.

Very soft!

I really enjoyed using Eskimo, and I think it is a great value, since it is 100% wool. But unlike many pure wool yarns, it is not scratchy, but instead it is very soft. It is not suitable for sewing a garment together, so I would recommend making a garment with virtually no seams, or using another more durable yarn for assembling the project. This color is very nice too!

frustrating to work with

I ordered several skeins of this type of yarn to make a pattern from Drops. It was a sweater for my granddaughter. The yarn keep breaking when used to sew the seams together using the mattress stitch. It might be a very good yarn for felting but frustrating to work with for a simple crocheted sweater.
