The colors are rich, but not overly saturated. It is soft, yet customers' experiences tell us it holds up well with minimal pilling. It is great for colorwork, and if you like doing it, you'll want a skein of each color for your palette! Hand washing is recommended.
JaggerSpun, of Springvale, has been producing spun yarns since the 1880’s when Uriah Jagger arrived from England and established a worsted spinning operation in the Mousam Valley of southern Maine. Since then, they have produced the yarns for the wholesale commercial markets. Putting yarn up in skeins, to provide stock to retail yarn shops, is new to them.

In the Seawall Cap and Mitts set, created by Maine designer, Mary O'Shea, we used one skein each of these six colorways: bayberry (cc3), brindle (mc), chokecherry (cc4), sagebrush (cc1), sunset (cc5) and teal (cc2) - with plenty of yarn left over for another project. (With a second skein of brindle, you can make second set!)
In the Loon Hat, created by Maine designer, Mrs. Knitter's Designs, we used one each of these four colorways: chokecherry, edelweiss, lava, and periwinkle. (With a second skein of lava, you can make a second hat.)
I received this yarn on my doorstep in a very short time. It was exactly as ordered and suits my need perfectly. I will definitely search for other products at Fiber of Maine.
