Used this yarn to knit bump blankets for baby photo shoots. The colours are stunning, gorgeous and jewel like, but have a tiny bit of shading in them which gives them a lustre. So far have bought 5 colours including the "bare"....might have to order the rest!

Love this roving. 5 more are in my wishlist, so hopefully that'll be coming along with my birthday! Very slick feel for spinning, so I wouldn't use this the very first time you're drop spinning. Get a rougher wool for your first project. But after that, this will be easy and educational. Relatively long staple, but does pull apart quickly if you're not paying attention. I have the tidepool heather. Lovely blues, greens and ambers throughout. Can't wait to knit it up!

I recently learned to spin, both on a spindle and on the wheel and I wanted to buy some roving that was decent quality but inexpensive, since I have a lot of practicing to do! This stuff is lovely with a relatively long staple length, and smooth drafting. The jewel tones of the amethyst and dill I bought were fantastic. Not only does the heather look pretty, but it is also useful to see the twist, especially for beginners. My only suggestion would be that I'd love for some neutral tones to be available. Although I love bright colors myself, there are some people I knit for who prefer neutrals. I also think it would be nice to have some neutrals to ply with the jewel tones.

hi, i would like to thank the staff who helped with my order. i am learning to spin .my order arrived today, it only took 8 days to arrive safe & sound to me in Australia. I`ve not tried it as yet but it was a wonderful surprise to open the box to a fantastic assortment of colour . The pictures on here are spot on with what you get. i will not hesitate to order again from Knit Picks. Thank you :)

I am learning to spin on a spinning wheel and used this fiber for the first time. It is PERFECT to work with! It drafts so well! I am currently using the Amethyst Heather color, and it is just a little bit darker to me than what shows up on my screen, but that is perfectly fine. I didn't buy it for the exactness of the color. Just because it was pretty and I needed some fiber. I can't wait to learn to use my wheel more and I will definitely be coming back for these soft, squishy, lovely fibers!
