We're pretty excited about Briggs & Little Sport. This 100% wool single is put up in 430 yard (393m) skeins. This means that you'll only need 4 or 5 skeins to make that cardigan you've been eyeing on Ravelry! This yarn works well as a main colour for a classic Shetland yoke sweater, along with Jamieson & Smith's 2 Ply Jumper Weight for the colour work.
Please note: Briggs & Little doesn't use an acid bath for their yarns, so you might notice small amounts of vegetable matter while knitting.

. . . having finished several sweaters, shawls, hats and afghans, I also consider these other reasons. The price. The colours, Knit and crochet projects are sweet and lightweight. The natural roughness, which really means less processing, can be tamed with wool wash and soaking, and the wool tolerates gauge adjustments nicely between 3mm and maybe up to 4.5mm. My 2019 Fall hat is a free pattern on Ravelry, the Butterfly and Bee Beanie (lots of ends with 5 colours, but soooo worth it). Working on another free Ravelry pattern from Blacker Yarns, the Stannum Cardigan in 1 colourway called Sheeps Grey - which is light grey/beige. Shannon's Bohus Sweater uses Sheeps Grey as the main colourway. Knitting a sweater, accessories or afghans with the Briggs and Little Sport is easy and the wear and care of wool is straightforward and longlasting.
