Comments about SMC Extra Soft Merino Opera:

I really like this yarn. I knitted a shrug as a gift. I like the weight, the fiber, the color, the sparkle. The only issue was when I had to change from one ball of yarn to the other. The pattern I used was very open stitch and so I wanted to spit splice so it wouldn't show at all. The yarn wouldn't do that and stay together. Maybe that's because of the superwash factor but I've had other superwash yarn where I did this. It is beautiful yarn, easy to work.
