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:

      This yarn is good for the price. I was happy with how soft it was. I haven't washed it yet, so I can't comment on that. It can let off some hairs here and there, but overall it doesn't shed too much. It does, however, split. I would buy this yarn again.

                I like this yarn. It is soft and the color is rich and true. It does run lighter then worsted. I had to change the pattern I was using because it knits up more like sport weight then worsted.
