I made a beautiful sweater calling for a fingering weight and used size six needle. It blocks very well and has gorgeous drape. The skeins are different so I would advise alternating skeins to avoid an obvious color change. I love the feel of this yarn and had no problems winding, no splitting or knots or any issues.

Really not that great for lace knitting...very thin even for lace weight and breaks easily. I had a lot of trouble winding the skein. I started making a lacy shawl with lots of "holes" and it has not turned out that well so far. I will be frogging it to make a more closely-knit accessory (e.g. hat)instead. Based on the fibre content and lack of strength, I don't think it will work that well as a sock yarn either.

        Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino:

        Used this yarn to make a shawl. The colours are beautiful (although not always true to website). The yarn is soft, supple, easy to wind from the skein. Finished product didn't need much blocking.

        Service from WEBS was top notch, as always.

          Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino:

          Another great addition to the growing stash. Can't comment on the yarn "in use" but it looks and feels wonderful.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Have always found WEBS service to be very good but this time they went above and beyond. I ordered the last 3 skeins of this product after it had been tempting me from the Close-Out pages for a long time. Customer service got in touch with me to advise me that one skein lacked the dye lot and asked if I still wanted it. This is a variegated yarn and I would never have noticed any difference, so I was impressed that they didn't just shove it in the bag and ship it, especially as it was half price. Delivery was prompt, even though I live in a semi-rural area in Canada, and I have never had a problem with either the delivery or condition of yarn shipped.

              Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino:

              I love this yarn! The colors are just beautiful and the drape when the item is finished is just about perfect. And...it knits so evenly I almost don't have to block it...even with a semi-lace or lace pattern. And knitting with it is as good as it gets.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Service and delivery were everything you want them to be. The exact items I ordered, perfectly packaged and received in just a few days. I love it when it works like that.

                  This is my second purchase of this yarn, I liked it so much I had to get more. I used it as the warp for a woven scarf, and now I'm going to try socks.

                      I'm returning two skeins of Color 127 Ella Rae Lace Merino because the colors on the website were so misleading. I wouldn't describe this as "pinks, purples," but would instead say "gray, black, pink." I was so disappointed when they arrived!
