    I made a sweater using the rosewood heather and the color is lovely. It knits up well and shows nice stitch definition. I would say the drape is average for wool (neither too stiff nor very loose) and the wear (pilling) is average. I would definitely reommend it.

    Some of the comments I read on this yarn said it was softer than Cascade 220. I have some of that, and I disagree -- I think the Cascade is a fair bit softer than this. The Ella Rae is, however, fuzzier.

    I was a little concerned when I got the yarn that the texture wouldn't be nice enough, but when I showed it to my husband, who will be the ultimate recipient of the sweater, he said "I like it! It feels nice and sturdy!" Make of that what you will. It was enough to convince me to keep it, in any case.

    I will say that the texture improves once it's knit up into fabric. However, I find it a bit hard on the hands to work with, which is not a problem I often have.

        I used this to make a worsted weight shawl. The yarn is a nice color. Not super soft, but nice enough. It's a nice yarn for the price.

              I've made two pairs of felted slippers using this yarn so far and they've both come out very nice. Just bought more for the same use. If you're looking for a decent worsted wool, this is it. Color selection I s excellent, been happy with all 7 I have ordered thus far.

                    I am knitting a fisherman's type cabled sweater with this yarn and find the weight just right. There is plenty of lanolin in the wool to keep the texture enjoyable, but i'm not sure I would want this next to my neck, for instance.

                      So far I am very happy with this yarn although I was a bit worried at first that it would be scratchy. Now that I'm nearly done knitting my sweater I don't think it will feel very course and I'm really looking forward to the finished product. Very good stitch definition and the guage is a little smaller than most worsted yarns but that works well for me.
