    Comments about Ella Rae Mega:

    Using this for a sweater jacket. The color is gorgeous and the fleece is soft. However it is so lightly twisted that it splits easily and sheds like crazy. I have a feeling it will pill or fuzz easily as well.

    Gorgeous super bulky yarn

          Comments about Ella Rae Mega:

          I love this yarn! I almost exclusively use chunky to super bulky yarns, I'm an instant gratification kind of girl. ;) I ordered 2 skeins in two different colors, and am coming back today to order several more...I just found a gorgeous blanket pattern that is going to look fantastic in this yarn. My only note of concern is picture accuracy...I got caribbean green and the actual color is a fair amount brighter than the picture. Still gorgeous, but I was expecting it to be paler. The purple crayon was spot on.

          The yarn it's self was nice

          By Rebecca-lynn

          from Summerville, SC

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Ella Rae Mega:

          The yarn knitted up real nicely and is really soft. I used it as a cowl and as a trim on a knitted blanket.
          However, the color is several shades darker when I got it than in the picture, to the point I had to check if I got the right yarn. Also at the ends the yarn tends to rip with little tension.
          I had little problem with the yarn knitting up and the ripping issue only seems to be around the ends.
          It knitted up extremely fast and easy, which was nice.
          All in all I think the problem with the yarn I had was how the site advertised it. It should probably change the image it uses to display the yarn.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The yarn I got was much darker than the picture displays. I was still able to use it but to others I suggest putting that into consideration. I ordered the deep cove blue, which was practically a different color when I got it, and the grey suit, which was also several shades darker and looked to be more like iron side grey when I got it.

          Other than that I had no problem with delivery and it arrived about a week after I placed my order.

          I made a cowl for my husband with this yarn. It is extremely splitty and difficult to work with. I will not be purchasing this again.

          shedding alert

          By Titecelinette

          from Antibes, France

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Easy to handle
          • Feels nice and soft

          Cons

          • excessive shedding

          Best Uses

          • Snoods

          Comments about Ella Rae Mega:

          I used this one in beautiful shade of Sandstone Heather to knit a subper bulky moebius snood. This wool is super easy to handle, even straight from the skein. What I like is its very natural however smooth feel. The only thing which could prevent me from buying it again is the fact it sheds everywhere, so much that the beige hair left on my black coat was mistaken for angora cat's hair !!!! Even though the colour palette is very attractive, as they somehow manage to make the most neutral shades vibrant!

          Wonderful BIG yarn!

          Comments about Ella Rae Mega:

          I do NOT like working with large needles, but I have made an exception for this yarn! It is wonderful!
          I am knitting a poncho & like it well enough that I will be knitting a 2nd one!
          The only drawback is that it has no twist. Need to knit carefully not to split the yarn.

          Poor quality

          By Lindsay

          from Chapel Hill, NC

          Pros

          • Soft

          Cons

          • Breaks easily

          Best Uses

            Comments about Ella Rae Mega:

            Although I love Webs, I am very disappointed in this yarn. I was excited to begin my project with this soft, bulky yarn, but even when I was balling the skeins, the yarn broke easily. I thought I could twist it as I was knitting--tedious-but that wasn't enough! It broke multiple times in the 1st ten rows of my sweater. I gave up because if it ripped so easily while knitting, the sweater might tear apart in every day use.

            Quick knit and fun to work with

            By Ar

            from Petaluma, CA

              Best Uses

              • Accessories
              • Home Decor Items
              • Scarves

              Comments about Ella Rae Mega:

              This is the first super bulky yarn I've worked with, and once I got over how huge it looked in the hank and started the convertible scarf/cowl project I bought it for I really liked it. It works up fast even for a slow knitter like me. Stitch definition is great - the project has cables and they really look sculpted.

              The one little letdown I'm experiencing is that this yarn has no sheen. It's very wooly, but I may be prejudiced because my last few projects were with skinny, shiny stuff like bamboo and merino sock yarn.

              It's a single but there doesn't seem to be any problem with breakage. It does split a little, probably because the only #15 needles I have are pointy metal things.

              All in all, I like it. It's different from what I'm used to and I'm enjoying how fast the project is going.
