      This yarn has a great twist that makes it feel like it was MEANT for crochet. Where some yarns are splitty with the hook, this just glides right along and allows the hook to grab it and go. It is a beautiful weight and has lovely color.

      I've received many compliments on the shawl I made from it. And it is SO soft and cuddly.

      This could be considered a pro OR a con, depending on your project, but it really grows upon blocking!

      I have several colors of this yarn. It shows up in Webs sock yarn listings. A lovely yarn, but NOT a good sock yarn. Socks were worn out and un-reparable in less than 6 months, while socks made long before in other yarns are happily being worn. Could be a great yarn for less abrasive items. Soft. Does wash up well. But I was so sad that my beautiful socks died young.

        Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino Discontinued Colors:

        I love the way Ella Rae Lace Merino is spun. It knits up so beautifully every time I use it. I make scarves, hat and gloves out of it but I can see it being used for other bigger projects too. I added beadwork to compliment it and was pleased with the way it turned out.
        As always, great service from Webs!

          I bought this yarn to use for warps on scarves. I haven't had time to tie them yet, but I think the yarn will work well and result in soft, unique scarves.

          Outstanding as always

            I have made three shawls with this yarn. The colors are wonderful and the yarn is soft and squishy. Even though it is all wool it is not a bit scratchy.

              Color is vibrant. It is multi colored and blends together very well. I plan to order more...lots more. Although using small needles, it works up quickly and smoothly.

              Comments about Ella Rae Lace Merino Discontinued Colors:

              I checked the color of my skein against those of Ella Rae's on the website. While my other skein was a very close match, this one purchased from WEBS looked more like the green and brown than the green and peach! Not happy about it, but it is non-returnable. I will use this skein to make another Atreides (pattern on Ravelry) just for practice.

                      I wanted to knit a shawl from this. The color and texture are fabulous, and I have a pattern that will fit it just right. I think it will be very easy to work with, although I haven't gotten any further yet than ball winding.

                        I love Ella Rae yarn. It has always wound well from the hank and has no knots. The yarn is spun so nicely and I get great stitch definition. It's soft and really a nice weight- heavy lace or light fingering.
