WOOL AND THE GANG:
The Feeling Good Yarn is a yarn from Wool and the Gang, a yarn company that offers high quality yarn. On their page they talk about how they source materials with consideration to reduce impact on our environment. They also use yarn fibers that are natural, renewable & biodegradable.

As the description of the yarn says, it’s a great yarn to be used for warmer months, & I think I would definitely agree with that.
HOW I’VE USED THE FEELING GOOD YARN:
I just recently got the chance to use Wool and the Gangs Feeling Good Yarn & I fell in love with this yarn fast. Honestly I always do, because what they deliver is such high quality!
From opening the package:
Starting with how the yarn was delivered & the packaging. It came in a beautiful well designed black & white paper bag with the text “Wool and the Gang” on it. It also had their hashtag #madeunique printed on it. This packaging tells me already that I’ve received a high quality product.
The yarn balls themselves are also well presented with beautiful, good printed labels, with clear descriptions of necessary information. With a thick paper labels they feel like good quality.
Finally my first impression with the yarn is that it’s soft, almost so soft that I couldn’t expect anything like that. Which truly takes me by surprise.
Concluding chat I can’t wait until I can start making something with it.
(Picture is from receiving another yarn from Wool and the Gang, but the experience was just as good)!
Crocheting with the yarn:
I got the yarn to crochet with it. Because let’s be honest, I really can’t knit & it’s the only way I use yarn. I also got the yarn with the goal to design a garment with it, more specifically a cardigan.
As the yarn suggests it works well with crochet hooks in size 5 mm, and I decided to go up just slightly to a 5.5 mm.
Working with the yarn was a breeze. It was light, super soft & easy to work with.
I ended up designing a crochet cardigan, a pattern I’m particularly satisfied with because of the yarn quality. I also had friends & family asking me to make one for them, which confirmed my feeling that this was a good yarn & design.
(My friends & family tends to tell me if there’s something they don’t like)!
Quality after some time has passed:
Since crocheting with the yarn, I’ve used the crochet cardigan multiple times & have also washed it. What’s great is that it hasn’t changed in any way. There’s no signs yet that the cardigan has been used & it looks just as great as when I first used it.
