            Great yarn for the price. Excellent stitch definition and elasticity - sproing! Knits up quickly, but I have noticed the plies kind of unwinding a little as I go along. Nothing serious, though.

                Comments about SMC Select Extra Soft Merino:

                This is a nice medium-quality yarn that's worth the price, but isn't a real luxurious yarn. It knits nicely, doesn't unravel easily, and softens a great deal after washing/blocking. It's quite lofty and warm, but does catch easily on wooden needles.

                Definitely one I'll go back to when warmth and softness are the big focus.

                    I made a Downton Abby hat with the yarn, it knitted fast and clean. It came out beautiful. I think I will order more in another color and make another.

                      Comments about SMC Select Extra Soft Merino:

                      I love this yarn, especially for sweaters for babies and children. For intricate pattern work and cables, this yarn knits up beautifully. The texture is consistent, and, to date, I have never encountered one of those annoying splicing knots one sometimes comes across in the middle of a skein.
