    Love this yarn!

    I made a beautiful baby blanket with this for a winter baby. It is lightweight and warm. I really like working with this yarn and bought a bunch more for a larger blanket.

    Knits to a better fabric weight at a DK gauge, 5.5 sts/in than worsted.

    Soft washable wool good for baby/kids sweaters that may need frequent washing. Washed swatches several times before knitting garment and they still look good.
    Good stitch definition for baby cables, guernseys, and other textured patterns.

    Not many kids colors in the range offered. Would love to see some bright primary colors.

    Not sure if I will use again, mainly d/t color choices and there are several beautiful washable merino yarns that are competition for this product.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool:

      The yarn is washable, and glides through your hand while using it! Makes great outfits for babies because it's so soft! I just had to make myself something so I choose a Temperature Scarf and Hat. Look at the weather chart where you live and knit the color of the High or Low of the day. Look up pattern on websearch, Temperature Scarf.

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool:

          I used this yarn to create a swatch for a Spring/Fall Poncho that I want to create. I saw a poncho made of 100% 2 ply cashmere for many hundreds of dollars and I knew I could find a similar yarn and get a better result. This yarn has the ply, drape, and softness of the poncho I saw. I am redesigning the poncho I saw to better highlight this yarn. I purchased in Blush Pink and I will look at other colors.

          This yarn really felt soft and smooth to work with. The finished product had a nice, even look. I soon bought more for two other projects.

            Knitted scarfs and hats for all women, men and children. Love the stitch definition and the softness of the yarn.

            Only complaint is sometimes (even with the same dye lot) there is more of one color than the others in the prints - example one skein was 3/4 forest green while all the others had the green, grey, etc. - a better balanced variety of color.

            Beautiful colors that coordinate well. Soft wool but nothing special. Biggest complaint is how easily the yarn splits! Also, it is light weight and does not have much body.

              I'm using this product to make a sweater, have used it in the past to make a scarf. Nice textured yarn with good resiliency. Easy to work with and washes and wears really well. Would give it a 5th star but it doesn't knit itself :)

              very soft (which is probably partly due to the loose twist which some may not like but i'm okay with), & machine washable. perfect for baby blankets.
