I've been using this yarn for a sampler afghan. I am overall impressed with the yarn. It is not as soft as the merino superwash yarns but it has a great hand and a lovely patina. I've been soaking it and then blocking it fairly aggressively with pins and it handles very well. I expect it will wear very well also. After blocking it softens a bit and relaxes to develop a nice drape. Most importantly for this kind of knitting it has a lovely extended color palette and the yarn is extremely consistent in weight across all colors. There have been very occasional bits of fluff but no knots or splices in any of the balls.

I bought this yarn to be the connecting border on a hexagon stained glass style crocheted blanket. I really do enjoy the variety of colors from which to choose and the saturation of the colors. What I don't care for is the ease with which this yarn splits while crocheting. I also was hoping for something a little softer. The other yarn in the blanket-to-be is also a superwash, but it's softer, less likely to fray, and just more enjoyable overall. Maybe the texture will improve after washing, but I can't say I'm charmed.

        Comments about Ella Rae Classic Superwash:

        I got this wool to knit a hoodie for a toddler. It feels nice, and is a lovely color (Merlot?), but is heavier than described - more like 4 sts. per inch than 5 (and I'm usually a tight knitter).

          I bought the yarn to knit a sweater. It's a work in progress, so all I an say about the yarn is that it knits up nicely. I'll have moe to say once the sweater is finished and worn.

                  These scarves are for Vets so I wanted worsted WASHABLE wool to keep the vet warm. Washable was essential and found the yarn that I wanted discounted. Three skeins of 100 gm is enough for two scarves with a little left over. I found the yarn I liked and the delivery fine The yarn was Ella Rae.

                      I made a simple baby sweater from this yarn that will keep him snug and happy for 6 months or more. The stitch definition and perfect. and the Olive color is great.

                      I regularly found extra pieces of fiber twisted into this yarn. A yellow, coarse, grass like fiber broken off into 1/4" pieces that I got frustrated about having to pick out.
