The luxurious volume and soft elasticity guarantee extra-soft comfort. Great for accessories such as scarves, hat, mittens, bags, capes and fashionable winter knits, from pullovers to jackets. Made in Romania.

    Comments about SMC Select Extra Soft Merino Color:

    This yarn actually works best IMHO in making solid, or nearly so fabrics, ie not lacey, though I do intend to experiment with that. I am making a poncho and the fabric is turning out a LOT like ikat, WOW! The fabric is a bit dense for my usual tastes but I like what is unfolding before my eyes. I suggest the following as ideal projects: ponchos, blankets/afghans, winter hats

    Service and delivery comments:

    WEBS services was awesome as usual, and all skeins were from the same dye lot.

              Always great delivery! I did not know this yarn produced a batik effect as I only did 1/10th of a swatch. Yarn is soft and has great stitch definition in the small sample I made. I just can't get over the color depth...it's out of the ordinary that the colors are so saturated and beautiful. Think I'll have to get more!

                Comments about SMC Select Extra Soft Merino Color:

                I bought this yarn to make a dress. My daughter only wanted it from THIS yarn that was pictured with the pattern. I was glad to find this at a reasonable price (was on sale), and in the color I needed. I'm loving working with it and can't wait to see the finished product.

                Comments about SMC Select Extra Soft Merino Color:

                This yarn is very soft, as advertised, and the colors (I used the purple/gold combination) are striking. One note on that colorway: there is a lot of gold, contrary to what is pictured.
                The yarn splits easily, but was OK once I got used to it. The biggest problem was that the purple dye ran a lot when it was washed, and changed to gold color quite a bit. That was definitely not good.
