Schachenmayr Select Extra Soft Merino Color

Schachenmayr Select Extra Soft Merino Color is an unbelievably soft and elegant yarn with a creative self-patterning batik effect. You will adore this yarn, thanks to the very fine merino wool. The luxurious volume and soft elasticity guarantee extra-soft comfort. Great for accessories such as scarves, hat, mittens, bags, capes and fashionable winter knits, from pullovers to jackets. Made in Romania.

Note: the ball band may reference "SMC" - this is the same company as Schachenmayr.

Comments about SMC Select Extra Soft Merino Color:

This yarn is very soft, as advertised, and the colors (I used the purple/gold combination) are striking. One note on that colorway: there is a lot of gold, contrary to what is pictured.
The yarn splits easily, but was OK once I got used to it. The biggest problem was that the purple dye ran a lot when it was washed, and changed to gold color quite a bit. That was definitely not good.
