      The yarn knitted up real nicely and is really soft. I used it as a cowl and as a trim on a knitted blanket.
      However, the color is several shades darker when I got it than in the picture, to the point I had to check if I got the right yarn. Also at the ends the yarn tends to rip with little tension.
      I had little problem with the yarn knitting up and the ripping issue only seems to be around the ends.
      It knitted up extremely fast and easy, which was nice.
      All in all I think the problem with the yarn I had was how the site advertised it. It should probably change the image it uses to display the yarn.

      I used this one in beautiful shade of Sandstone Heather to knit a subper bulky moebius snood. This wool is super easy to handle, even straight from the skein. What I like is its very natural however smooth feel. The only thing which could prevent me from buying it again is the fact it sheds everywhere, so much that the beige hair left on my black coat was mistaken for angora cat's hair !!!! Even though the colour palette is very attractive, as they somehow manage to make the most neutral shades vibrant!

            Comments about Ella Rae Mega:

            I knitted a thick and cozy sweater for my spouse using this yarn. It's wonderfully soft and easy to work with. The color was spot on - I purchased the Hunter Green Heather. As with other roving and lightly spun yarns, you need to be careful not to pull or yank the thread while knitting. This sweater knit up so fast and the results were so fabulous that I am buying more to make a sweater for myself. Because of the generous amount of yarn in each skein, I only needed 5 skeins to make a sweater.

              use a bigger needle, I used 35 because I wanted it to have drape and flow
              after few rounds, it frays...
              but it is not heavy and hope my husband would wear it.

              I used this to make a blanket for a friend's wedding. It's not as soft as cascade magnum and mine had particulates in it that i couldn't remove. It is, however, quite beautiful and blocked well.

              Using this for a sweater jacket. The color is gorgeous and the fleece is soft. However it is so lightly twisted that it splits easily and sheds like crazy. I have a feeling it will pill or fuzz easily as well.

                    I love this yarn! I almost exclusively use chunky to super bulky yarns, I'm an instant gratification kind of girl. ;) I ordered 2 skeins in two different colors, and am coming back today to order several more...I just found a gorgeous blanket pattern that is going to look fantastic in this yarn. My only note of concern is picture accuracy...I got caribbean green and the actual color is a fair amount brighter than the picture. Still gorgeous, but I was expecting it to be paler. The purple crayon was spot on.

                    The yarn I got was much darker than the picture displays. I was still able to use it but to others I suggest putting that into consideration. I ordered the deep cove blue, which was practically a different color when I got it, and the grey suit, which was also several shades darker and looked to be more like iron side grey when I got it.

                    Other than that I had no problem with delivery and it arrived about a week after I placed my order.

                    I do NOT like working with large needles, but I have made an exception for this yarn! It is wonderful!
                    I am knitting a poncho & like it well enough that I will be knitting a 2nd one!
                    The only drawback is that it has no twist. Need to knit carefully not to split the yarn.
