I haven't used this yet, but I was a little disappointed at how small the balls of roving were, about the size of the palm of my hand. However, I was thinking of ordering some colored roving from another company, and according to the dimensions given, those balls of roving would be half of these. I''m just getting into needle felting, and what I've learned so far is that you generally use the color on top of the plain roving.
This yarn is much thinner than the usual 4 rating and thankfully is a little uneven adding an extra element beyond stitch type, I'm using two strands together and the effects of color change and density makes the scarf I'm making one of the most lovely to date. The yarn is very, very soft and I'm certain this gift to for my friend will be appreciated.
This item is great ONCE you get the yarn on going in the right direction. You must be sure the yarn is unwinding from the top, not from underneath. The ends of the "umbrella" have hooks (why I don't know), but they also have a tendency to grab the yarn while you're trying to wind it and that is annoying. Otherwise, it's a great item.
