    It is hard to find a non-merino based washable 100% wool in a chunky weight at a reasonable price. As this purchase is for a blanket, I needed over 2000 yds and this wool was PERFECT for my needs and has great stitch definition. The only downside that I CAN live with is how it un-twists easily.
    Thank you Ella Rae and thank you WEBS!

    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.

      Comments about Ella Rae Classic Superwash Chunky Heathers:

      Had slubs of lighter colored roving? that were too frequent but not frequent enough to be a design element. I hate getting skeins that have tied together lengths in it (and also free ends in this case). And what I have never seen before is broken or cut plies so that there are bits of ends hanging loose from the fabric. The yarn would be fine without these problems, but quality control is obviously lacking.

        Comments about Ella Rae Classic Superwash Chunky Heathers:

        I bought this yarn to crochet an afghan for my daughter. It is very loosely plied so it it can be a pain not snagging it on the way back through loops. It is also quite a coarse texture but I haven't washed it at all yet so it may very well soften up. That also means I don't really know how superwash it is... It does seem like it will be hard wearing, here's hoping! Considering it was quite affordable I'm not particularly disappointed.

              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!

                          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.
