First time we saw this yarn, we were smitten! Scout is an exceptional yarn. And it's dyed in the most beautiful and complex heathered shades - you'll have a hard time picking which to use first!
We used it to make the Midnight In Berlin shawl by Melanie Berg, and not only it is absolutely stunning, it wears so well and can take a real beating! This yarn has become one of our best sellers, and it's not surprising at all!
A lofty, complex 2-ply dk yarn, Scout is unfussy, strong and wonderfully versatile. It's been designed with classic knitting and crochet in mind.
To quote the Kelbournians: "Scout is yarn for the sake of yarn!"

I don’t normally knit with wool as I prefer something softer but was looking for some decent colours for a Soldotna crop and this yarn has so many lovely colours to choose from. It... view more’s got a lovely fluffy finish- I’ve noticed it pilling a tiny bit at the underarms but I think that’s probably to be expected from a pure wool and easily remedied with good care of your woollens! Also thought this was excellent value. view less
