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:

    Bought this for a test knit - was looking for something pretty and bulky, in the colours I wanted, but not too expensive, as it was a test knit. This yarn was perfect in all regards and I would not only purchase it again if the need arose, but recommend it to anyone knitting something bulky weight.

    This yarn knits up very quickly, it is a bit heavy as a sweater. Yarn is also a bit splitty.

    Comments about Ella Rae Classic Superwash Chunky Heathers:

    It's not as robust as many chunky yarns: very soft, unravels, snags, hard to fix without separating the strands and then having little loops sticking out. I gave this a good review on my previous purchase because I didn't think it was so bad, but now I'm just fed up with it.

    Not Much Heather

    Comments about Ella Rae Classic Superwash Chunky Heathers:

    It's a solid dull color - I don't see any heather in it. Maybe I bought a non-heather color, and they just call it all heather. It splits easily so is not easy to fix, and has a limp feel to it: next to Brown Sheep's Chunky Handpaint or Cascade's heather superwash, it's not as crisp and defined. But for the price, it's okay.

    Comments about Ella Rae Classic Superwash Chunky Heathers:

    I bought this yarn to use for a sweater and some hats. On the nicer end, the colors are beautiful and vibrant. The yarn is soft and smooth and knits up quickly.

    However, my main issue with this yarn is the inconsistency of the skeins. The first skein that I used was fine, but the next two had multiple knots (where different lengths of yarn had been tied together to make the whole skein) and multiple places where some of the plies had been cut/ripped and started to unravel, creating lengths of rough fluff and flyaway plies. The skeins also tend to sort of fall apart as you use them if you pull from the center.

    I really do like the yarn because it's quite pretty and warm (and superwash!), but you should definitely be prepared to be weaving in extra ends throughout the skein especially if you use multiple skeins in a project.

        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.

            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!
