Great merino yarn at a great price. Very, very soft so it's perfect for hats, scarves, mittens, etc. Great range of colors, and great stitch definition too. Only negative comment is that the yarn did not feel as "thick" as a worsted weight, and my hats all knit up a little on the thin side.

I'm knitting my son a school jumper with this yarn. It's absolutely fine for this purpose; although I had envisaged something more 'wooly'. But this is superwash, and I suspect that might be the compromise one has to make with such yarns. Anyway, it knits quickly and fairly easily. Minor issues I have with it (and this might be due to my relative inexperience as a knitter) is that it splits fairly easily if I'm not paying attention to my knitting. The other thing is that it's incredibly dull to knit (I prefer more interesting yarns and colours; this is navy blue, pretty boring). Overall though it's pretty much spot on for a school jumper. It's yet to undergo a wear/wash test, so we'll see.

      My granddaughter wanted a sweater that was "very soft and not scratchy" so I am making her one with this beautiful yarn. I know she will be as pleased as I am. Being washable makes it perfect. Good price, too.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select Worsted Merino Superwash:

          This is the first really quality yarn I've ever bought. I always used cheap yarn and had no idea that there was this big of a difference. I've gone through 2 skeins and haven't run into any knots, thinning or splitting. The pattern I'm using has cabling and the yarn seems to showcase it. I love this yarn. Worth every penny!

            I have used this to knit cabled sweaters and ribbed neckwarmers. It has great stitch definition. I has such a nice hand, it is joyous to work with.

              Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select Worsted Merino Superwash:

              I have used this specific yarn in the past year for two projects - a linen scarf and a mermaid blanket. While these projects were very different they were both made more enjoyable because of the select merino. The yarn has a wonderful texture and weight. The next project I plan to knit with this yarn is a blanket in garter stitch. I know the star of the show will be the yarn in this simple pattern. I can't wait to see the finished product. I recommend this for projects that need stitch definition - it is marvelous.

                  Great merino yarn at a great price. Very, very soft so it's perfect for hats, scarves, mittens, etc. Great range of colors, and great stitch definition too. Only negative comment is that the yarn did not feel as "thick" as a worsted weight, and my hats all knit up a little on the thin side.
