    I'm knitting my son a school jumper with this yarn. It's absolutely fine for this purpose; although I had envisaged something more 'wooly'. But this is superwash, and I suspect that might be the compromise one has to make with such yarns. Anyway, it knits quickly and fairly easily. Minor issues I have with it (and this might be due to my relative inexperience as a knitter) is that it splits fairly easily if I'm not paying attention to my knitting. The other thing is that it's incredibly dull to knit (I prefer more interesting yarns and colours; this is navy blue, pretty boring). Overall though it's pretty much spot on for a school jumper. It's yet to undergo a wear/wash test, so we'll see.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select Worsted Merino Superwash:

      I purchased the yarn for a complex cable patterned sweater. Color is lovely, as shown. The reviews said this yarn had great stitch definition, which is partly why I purchased it. I found this recommendation to be very true, and I am pleased with the way the project is working up. There is a minor problem with the yarn separating slightly as I knit, which means I need to be careful with the splits to catch all the little fraying hairs. It is neither continuous nor a large problem - only a minor inconvenience, which is why I rated the yarn 4 out of 5, rather than 5 out of 5. I would still buy it again for a similar project. Nice feel, nice yarn, nice color, nice price.

        This yarn is so soft and works for just any project. hats, scarves, & socks I also love that it is machine washable. I have always been a fan of Plymouth and made many items with their yarn. my daughter can't wear wool next to her skin but she is able to wear a hat and a scraf using this yarn and wants to try a pair of socks with my new found yarn.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select Worsted Merino Superwash:

          The product is great to work with, as it is a stiff, course yarn, however, I preferred a little softer hand than what it offered. I made a hat with it.

            Comments about Plymouth Yarn Select Worsted Merino Superwash:

            I've been searching for the perfect superwash worsted weight yarn, but this isn't quite it. I love the stitch definition, which is beautiful, and the yarn is relatively soft, too. It is a little splitty, but not at an annoying level. However, one ball had three knots in it! This is simply not acceptable for a yarn in this price range.
