Best Worsted Merino Wool Ever!

Knitted a raglan, top down cardigan. Absolutely the best 100% merino wool I've ever knitted with. Extremely soft so you can wear it next to the skin. I'll be purchasing this again!

Only "con" I can come up with (if you can call it a negative) is that it's a bit stretchy. Doesn't knit up tightly and that's something to keep in mind when making sweaters.

I bought this yarn with a specific project in mind. It is not even close to worsted weight. It's not even quite DK weight. It's beautiful, soft, and the color is gorgeous, but I just wasted a bunch of money on yarn I can't use. I gave it 3 stars because it is so lovely, but I'm so disappointed right now.

Pros

  • Beautiful Color
  • Machine Washable
  • Nice To Work With
  • Soft Yarn

Cons

  • None

Best Uses

  • Lacey Designs
  • Lightweight Sweaters
  • Shawls

Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino Worsted Discontinued Colors:

I purchased this yarn for a specific scarf pattern, but the weight was lighter than I expected and just wouldn't work well. I loved the color, though, so I chose a different project (a shawl) and ordered another skein so I would have enough. It's going to be a special gift for a friend.

Service was excellent.

      Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino Worsted Discontinued Colors:

      I bought two skeins just to try it--one in each of two colorways. I love them both! I have gotten so many compliments on my hat. Once I block my mittens, I expect to get just as many compliments. This yarn is fantastic! I might just buy more!

      Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino Worsted Discontinued Colors:

      It looks more in between worsted and sport, but it knitted up into a nice hat and is quite lovely. Very soft, good quality yarn.

        Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino Worsted Discontinued Colors:

        I love lace merino for knitting prayer shawls to give to those going through a difficult time. The shawls mean to much to those receiving them, and using such a soft and lovely yarn delights me, the knitter, and those receiving the shawls.

                Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino Worsted Discontinued Colors:

                I was very happy with the wool until I got to about the 4th skein. All others had been great, but this one was tangled and hard to unwind. It also had 4 places in the same skein where the yarn had been tied. I think that is too many. The other skeins were nothing like it.
                I am making a sweater that has some pretty stitching, and this yarn shows the stitches. The color distribution is very nice for the sweater. Satisfying product except for the 1 skein - wonder why?
