Superb!

I'm a big fan of roving yarn, and this one checks all the boxes for me. It works beautifully, is soft but not scratchy, has lots of yardage, has a tremendous price-to-yardage ratio, and has some good color options. The details in the project I'm currently knitting show well. It's durable, and I see myself working with this yarn again.

Ewe know there is a difference?

After buying Wool Ease previously on Amazon, I was unhappy that the yardage, per skein, wasn't quite enough to make one hat because I will be working on a community service project for the entire year of 2024, and I'm planning on making LOTS of crocheted hats. When I looked directly on the Lion brand website, I was excited about the additional Wool Ease colors AND that the additional yardage per skein was enough to complete each adult medium hat. What could be more perfect? Well........ I actually ordered THINKING I was getting the 80% Acrylic/20% Wool Ease variety like I had previously ordered on Amazon. When I received this yarn it was 100% wool........ I had no clue when I ordered it that Roving Origins meant something different. The bottom line is that now when completing the final step of making a hat (drawstring pull up to secure the closure at the top), the 100% wool yarn is not strong enough and it breaks. I need to secure the hats at the top instead with an acrylic yarn to get a tight, secure pull up closure.
No biggie, it was more of a reading problem for me than a yarn problem :-)
