I like this yarn quite a bit but it does have its challenges. As far as merino goes, you can't beat the quality and texture for the price. I really like how this yarn feels when it's been worked up - soft and springy. The colors are also bright and clear with no variation within the dye lot.

It does tend to twist up quite a bit and it splits but not terribly. I would recommend this to anyone who was looking for a mid to upper quality wool that wasn't going to kill their budget.

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.

Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select Worsted Merino Superwash:

I wanted a wool yarn that was soft enough for babies heads as I make hats for babies and toddlers. I found this yarn last winter when I started selling and I've used it two seasons in a row.

It is so soft for a wool, people don't believe me when I say it's 100%! Since I make kids stuff, the machine washable part is super important as well.

I get great mileage out of one skein of yarn, so for the price, this goes a long way! Plus I love the color variety!

      I've used the DK and Worsted weight and the Worsted weight has just the right amount of thickness for a fair-isle winter hat.

                    This is my favorite worsted weight superwash wool. It is typically a bit more than other superwash wools, but the merino is sooo worth it. After knitting with other wools, this is like butter as it passes through my hands. :)
