I love a lot of things about Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool. I love that it only comes in undyed colors. I love that it’s minimally-processed and fairly reeks of delicious lanolin. I love that it’s basically exactly the same as my #1 favorite, Cascade 220, but at half the price. All of this in a yarn that I can buy at Joann’s with my monthly “50% off”!
One thing I don’t love? It cables poorly.
Will you look at that? That’s a pretty serious cable, but the yarn just, like… lies there. I even tried scrunching it up with my fingers when I blocked it, but no dice.
All of which is to say that A) I don’t recommend this yarn for cabled projects, and B) if this cowl wins a crappy ribbon, I’m blaming the yarn.
