I have been using this yarn for more than 18 years and have never found another yarn that retains its shape & sponginess as well. It handles machine washing better than sheets & towels! And the full color range allows you to knit those great multi-colored patterns that Dale of Norway is known for.

Dale's Baby Ull has been my favorite moderate-priced merino fingering weight yarn for about two decades. I had one skein left of heather gray that I had purchased several years ago - not enough for the pair of socks I wanted to knit. I ordered two skeins of the same color and knitted the socks, but I was so disappointed to find that the yarn quality had deteriorated so much. The current yarn is much thinner than previous Baby Ull was, and the twist tends to split. The socks are nowhere near as nice as countless pairs knit from Baby Ull were. I would not recommend this yarn to anyone. What was a marvelous value for the price has become simply cheap.

      Comments about Dale of Norway Baby Ull:

      This is a nice yarn with a good hand and consistent, reliable quality. It does split easily however and I would recommend using metal needles with a fine tapered point to deal with he tendency to split. I knit identical baby sweaters for my twin grandsons. The first I used bamboo needles and was very frustrated by the tendency to split. The second I ordered new addi turbos and solved the splitting issue. It was a much more enjoyable knitting experience. The yarn knits into a very smooth and even fabric and has excellent stitch definition.

              Comments about Dale of Norway Baby Ull:

              I am using Baby ULL to knit a baby afghan that will be a gift for a great-grandson. The pattern is "loving hearts" and is lacy with hearts. Baby's mother wants the afghan to be green. I wanted to find a green that was appropriate for a baby, but not the typical baby green. Baby ULL comes is great colors and is knitting up beautifully.

              This yarn was used for a Norwegian Sweater Pattern with steeked sleeves, sized for a 17" Toddler Doll. The results have been spectacular so far. It is still in the construction stage, but the performance of the yarn has been the greatest asset so far.

                I ordered one ball of Baby Ull in fuscia because I was in the middle of making a baby sweater for my most recent granddaughter when I ran out. I received my order very quickly and the color, although bought 2 years later than the previous yarn, matched perfectly. I am very pleased.

                  I am using the yarn for a great-gradndaughter's dress, hopefully for the holidays. It is so soft that she won't complain about wearing it - and washable to boot!! I am having difficulty using such small needles but will perserver- it has nothing to do with the excellent yarn product.

                    Comments about Dale of Norway Baby Ull:

                    I used this yarn to make the blanket (pattern on Ravelry) it was the recommended yarn. Knitted up well and is soft. I chose white as the colour it is a good shade not to harsh or bright. The manufacturer recommends that fabric softner is not used when washing and the recipiant needs to know this.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Prompt delivery and in good condition. The yarn was packed loose in a USP padded envelope. It would have been better protected in a plastic covering before being placed in the envelope especially as it was white.

                    I am making a cowl for my niece. I like the texture of the wool and the density of the finished knit. I have had some difficulty with the separation of the strands as knitting my project.
