    I found that this yarn was very slippery! If I'm not careful, the stitches tend to slip right off my metal needles. then, because it splits easily, the stitches are a pain to pick up again. I usually prefer a metal needle, but with this yarn I might recommend wooden - but not too rough a wood because I suspect the yarn might snag as easily as it splits. Joining two ends was problematic as well, because knots just pull apart (like they've been sprayed with silicon or something.) Had to use the "loop" method of joining, because I didn't trust a knot to hold.

    Other than those two things, it was fun to use - the colors develop nicely.

    Do be aware that this is a rather light worsted - almost a DK weight. Excellent for lighter garments, but I wouldn't rely on it to produce a thicker fabric.

    It is NOT worsted weight yarn. It is much thinner and splinters easily. The product is mislabeled on their website. I would not recommend anybody looking for worsted weight to buy this yarn. As a sport/fingering, it is ok. It is a little coarse/rough, but it's slippery too which makes it soft-ish. The colors have no rhyme or reason behind them, so you can often get large chunks of one color, small snippets of another, and then back to large chunks of the original color (and for me, it wasn't even the nice color, I got a drab gray-ish brown instead of the red and purple pictured). You could try to search for a good section, but good luck. I wasn't able to find a good chunk to splinter in, except for the outside layer. Not worth having to hunt for a good piece to knit with. I am now looking for someone to trade with me, so I can actually have pretty worsted weight yarn for my sweater.

      I purchased this wool to crochet a hat for myself. It worked up easily and quickly, and the colors were glorious. I posted a picture of my hat on Facebook, and everyone loved the way the colors came out just as much as I do.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool Print:

      While listed as "worsted" Liberty is definitely on the lightest end of the worsted weight scale. It's wonderfully soft and I had the pleasure of using the yarn to knit a luscious scarf for a differently abled young woman who loves it so much, she sleeps with it! Yes-it's that soft!

        Soft but Splitty

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool Print:

          I knit the scarf Molly out of this yarn. It has great color combinations. It is very soft and very warm. It was quite splitty as I was knitting, but I am happy with how the project came out overall. I haven't washed it yet, so can't say anything about that. One skein did have a knot in it. Other reviews have stated that the skeins run light (not 50 grams), but I didn't read that until after I finished and I am not in the habit of weighing my yarn.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool Print:

              I bought this yarn to make a cabled throw. Although I am not finished yet, it is knitting up beautifully. The striping makes for an interesting pattern with no additional work from me. The only thing that is challenging is choosing the next skein to use so that I continue with same color swatch that I am using -- I don't want color shifts to be too dramatic although I suspect that they'd get lost in the size of the throw. Very easy to work with and a comfortable weight.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool Print:

              I purchased the yarn to go along with a pattern booklet, which I really like, but the color combination that I chose turned out to be rather muddy and not at all attractive when knit up.

              Possibly a different color would have looked better, but sometimes the small swatches shown don't have enough of the different colors.

              I didn't find this a particularly soft yarn, I wouldn't want it wrapped around my neck as a scarf, for instance, a hat might be ok. I ended up making a cowl, but really was not happy with it, and will end up taking it apart and using a softer yarn. Not sure what I will do with this yarn, too bad because I purchased 3 skeins. Maybe a man's hat would be okay. Otherwise pretty disappointed, which has not happened before with purchase from WEBS.

                Wonderfully soft with great patterning. Bonus that it's macine washable! I've made a couple of hats for my husband and they quickly became favorites.

                Great for Baby Surprise Jacket. Making Elizabeth cardigan with it.
