Smile Outback wool? What can you tell me about it?

I am thinking about buying some longies from Wool Baby Knits on HC and they use Outback wool. Tell me about it from a non biased POV.

Also, if you know anything about Wool Baby Knits, tell me. What did you think of the wool, the workmomship, everything overall? I can't find any feedback for them.
TIA!

I really like outback wool,I knit with it alot,it holds up well,comes in cool colorways. Sometimes it can feel a bit rough,but an overnight soak in conditioner softens them right up

I love Outback Wool, when I was first getting into wool I tried several WAHM soakers, and the first one that I was really impressed with was made of Outback Wool. It held whatever my daughters could give it. Also wore very well (could be the knitter too). I used a pair of longies through two kids and just sold them here, they still looked awesome (even with playing outside and such). Well Anyway.

Wool Baby Knits is a mom/daughter knitting pair, I believe. i bought from Anna (xstitchnutcase) in WAHM Wares (so you can see her FB here) and we love the little shorties we got from her. I think they recently opened their HC store.

there is a rave for her somewhere in this forum - i can try to find it.

here it is...

I like Outback wool alot. I haven't bought some in a couple of years, but I really enjoyed knitting with it. I made my first pair of longies out of Outback, they were durable, and for the price, its really a bargain, imo.

Definitely worth trying!
