From shawls to sweaters to throws, this yarn can't be beat for softness and sheer touch-ability. With solids, heathers, and beautiful self-striping 'painterly' colors, Homespun® comes in gorgeous shades you'll love. Please note that some colors have long, slow color variations that cause them to subtly stripe. This is deliberate and adds to the beauty of the finished garment; such yarns are designated as our 'painterly' colors.

I may have reviewed Homespun before. I crochet so I don't know if it is easier for knitters. But, it is a little finicky to handle. If you like the colors, just make a small gauge swatch and look at how beautiful the texture appears. So, despite it all, I go back to it again and again. My favorite item is pocket shawls. They are simple items so they show off the color and texture. LB has a pocket shawl pattern that I go back to over and over. It's the one item I'm asked to gift again and again. And it is the fastest item to go at charity auction tables.
I love the yarn; prices great. Delivery was a bit unpredictable. Anywhere from 1 week to a month. Amazingly, when I gave up on my first one, it showed up on my doorstep! Now I can complete my project.
I’m using this yarn to make afghans for all of my grandkids. Have used it before and love the weight and how it looks.
