      Comments about Ella Rae Classic Wool:

      So far I am very happy with this yarn although I was a bit worried at first that it would be scratchy. Now that I'm nearly done knitting my sweater I don't think it will feel very course and I'm really looking forward to the finished product. Very good stitch definition and the guage is a little smaller than most worsted yarns but that works well for me.

        Classic Wool by Ella Rae

        By Slow and steady

        from West Bloomfield, MI

        About Me Enthusiast

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Dyed Evenly
        • Easy To Fix
        • Knits Quickly
        • Nice Fabric
        • Nice Texture

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Afghans
          • Felting

          Comments about Ella Rae Classic Wool:

          I purchased this yarn to make several different squares to be sewn together to make an afghan. I have a thing for 'real' yarn--that is, not super-wash. Although typically coarse, it knits up to result in a nice fabric that is softer than you might think. Even so, I am considering lining one side of the afghan with some sort of soft fabric, e.g., flannel. One other item is that if you occasionally puncture the yarn with your needle, it doesn't recover so well. I think post-blocking everything will look fine, but thought this worth mentioning.

            scarfs/lap blanket/shawl

            It feels like real wool

            They do not have enough vibrant colors. I would buy more.

                I'm sure this would be a nice yarn for many other uses, too, but I love it for felting. Like Woolpak, it felts with a beautiful subtle curly texture -- just the best!

                Great yarn

                By Anonymous

                from Fort Belvoir, VA

                Comments about Ella Rae Classic Wool:

                While there are softer yarns that I would give 5stars for, this yarn is a great yarn to work with and not too scratchy for sweaters, scarves, etc. Colors are beautiful, very warm and would consider it a basic go-to yarn for projects. The price is awesome for such a great yarn! Definitely recommend to anyone interested in trying it.

                Great Value Worsted Weight Wool

                By Anonymous

                from Undisclosed

                Comments about Ella Rae Classic Wool:

                I made a sweater using the rosewood heather and the color is lovely. It knits up well and shows nice stitch definition. I would say the drape is average for wool (neither too stiff nor very loose) and the wear (pilling) is average. I would definitely reommend it.

                Comments about Ella Rae Classic Wool:

                This is a very nice, basic yarn. Looks and knits up much like Cascade 220, but comes pre-wound. Price is absolutely great. Would recommend it.
