        As soon as I started knitting with this yarn, I felt an addiction coming on. It's smooth, easy to knit with, and has great stitch definition. Not at all scratchy. I knit a pair of fingerless gloves for my rather particular teenage sister, and she loves them. I didn't find it at all splity. I only used two skeins, but no quality problems with either.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select DK Merino Superwash:

        I have made many afghans and blankets over the years and this has been my greatest find. Crochets beautifully, clean tight stitches, no knots no snags. And the BEST part is that it is machine washable and dryable! Which is a must for baby blankets and very hard to find. I will buy this for any future projects.

            I loved how soft this yarn was. It did split easily, so I had to pay attention to my work.

                We used this to make baby hats and socks, and it was totally perfect! So soft, and it will be so warm and easy to clean.

                not in love, but it knit up into a cute

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select DK Merino Superwash:

                I made a girls sweater it has a nice drape, the yarn was good, I'm not a fan of superwash in general, it feels too "cotton-y" to me and I'm a wool person, but the sweater was for a 5yo and needs to stand up to a wash. However, without that "grab" from rougher wool my ends tended to come loose despite being woven in and given a small knot.

                I'd buy it again for a similar use.

                          It has just enough stretch.

                          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select DK Merino Superwash:

                          I am knitting a baby overall with this yarn and am pleased with its softness. It also seems like the way it is plied makes for a nice smooth finish. Unlike other superwash merinos I've knitted with, the overall is not already covered in pills, even though it is still on the needle! I'm hoping that the garment will wear well too, once it is finished. I am using short, metal DPNs, and I am often knitting into the yarn. Sometimes when I do this, the yarn bounces right back, and other times it snags. I'm having to be a little creative about covering up these snags, which is the only downside of this yarn for me.

                            Making a jacket with it and so far works up well.
