Schachenmayr Select Extra Soft Merino Cotton

Schachenmayr Select Extra Soft Merino Cotton really is extra soft! This super soft merino/cotton blend is light but still has some warmth to it. This would be great for summer evening accesories, or layering pieces. Kids garments would be great too since this one is machine washable. Made in Romania.

Note: the ball band may reference "SMC" - this is the same company as Schachenmayr.

          I haven't worked with the skein yet, that's why the less than perfect rating.

          I am using four skeins of this yarn in different color to make a diagonal scarf. Loads of fun.

              Comments about SMC Select Extra Soft Merino Cotton:

              This yarn has the best of both worlds of wool and cotton, the DK gauge is flexible for variety of knitting, I wish there are more of this wool/cotton blends in sport and fingering weight. The colors are bright and solid, with some shine from the wool, knits so beautifully.

                  Using this for a sweater for my one-year old grandson. Should be very nice for him, soft and warm, but not too warm. Nice to knit with, works up very evenly and neatly.
