      Knitting cabled jacket/sweater and definition is excellent. A great array of colors. The only reason I didn't give 5-Star because it does easily unravels; I'm slowing down to avoid unnecessary corrections. Price reasonable and Webb's sale price was Fantastic! At sale price an afghan is an excellent project.

      I appreciate that this is a super wash wool available in many colors. I didn't appreciate this yarn being labeled as chunky weight. When knitting with this in garter stitch, my gauge is much closer to a worsted weight. I purchased this yarn to make an afghan and ended up having to spend twice as much as I had anticipated.

        Sweater nearly complete, and only minor complaint is that the yarn splits easily and you can't dry by machine as well as washing.

                I love this soft wool for crocheting throws. The yarm provides light-weight warmth with none of the scratchy qualities of other wools. The fact that the yarn is washable was a must!

                    I used this stuff to knit up some beanie hats. They turned out glorious! The colors are rich and even, its soft and thick and the heather colors are very beautiful blends. I certainly hope that Yarn.com continues to carry this yarn at this price. Its truly fabulous!

                    Comments about Ella Rae Classic Superwash Chunky Heathers:

                    Bought this in 2 colors for kids' outerwear projects. Every ball had an issue, whether it was a broken ply or a blob of unspun color. I had to look ahead for problems or risk knitting them in. Yarn was splitty when worked with blunt needles; sharper points helped a lot. Colors are lovely. Gauge is as described (chunky or bulky). Soft enough for outerwear; not sure about next-to-skin use. Sale price is good.

                    This wool isn't as soft as I wanted. The finish and loft differs on some of the colors. It is nothing special in my opinion.

                        Knits up easily, great colors, and nice texture.

                        Wears extremely well. I made a hat for my boyfriend and it has been worn, washed, and abused for several years. It still looks good as new.

                        Unlike the previous reviewer, this yarn knit to the stated gauge for me as a true chunky weight.
