        I made a baby blanket in the style of a sampler - 5 squares by 6 squares, with a garter border. Yarn seemed to work up nicely, but:
        1. Of the 16 balls (each 50gr, 90yds), at least 5 had the yarn knotted. This is a pet peeve of mine, and in my opinion should not happen in such small balls of yarn. I should be able to knit a 6x6 square without having knots!
        2. This is a "superwash" merino. Being a baby blanket, I wanted to wash it before giving it as a gift. I did so on the delicate cycle in cold water with Woolite. The result was an unevenly stretched out blanket. The different squares (with different stitch patterns) stretched out to varying degrees. The blanket that started out as 31" x 37" before washing ended up after much coaxing and reblockingh at 33" x 40".

            I really enjoy knitting with this yarn. The feel is wonderful, it's not the least bit "itchy" - a problem I've had with other yarns. The cables pop. There is no "fuzz." I am using it to make scarves, including scarves for the WWII Museum's "Knit your BIt" to get homemade scarves for veterans, and I am proud to send then washable wool of this quality.

                The color and price were fabulous. At first, the yarn felt a little plastic-y, but that went away as I continued to knit with it. I made the mara shawl for a friend going through chemo, so it was important that it be washable, easy care, soft, not scratchy. I was very happy with how the project turned out and may stash more for a future project.

                    I am sad this wool doesn't come in DK weight and even more sad that it is being discontinued. It makes a beautiful product and is a joy to knit with.

                            I, and my knit-wit friends, made several cabled sweaters with this yarn and they turned out beautifully. The yarn was very forgiving if you accidently had a stitch-ectomy to deal with! We have gone through our Bergere de France and Vogue Knitting books and bought as much of this yarn as we could afford while it's still available at Webs on sale! I highly recommend it (but don't you buy my favorite colors, leave them for ME).

                            Unlike other people, I did not have a problem with knotw-one knot in 7 skeins. For the money, this is a great yarn for baby items. I made an Eyelet Baby Blanket, and am very pleased with it.
