A friend asked me to weave some baby blankets for upcoming baby showers. I wanted a variety of colors in an affordable, machine-washable material, and this was perfect for that purpose. The yarn is pretty soft, and it gets softer with washing. There were a few snags and a few slubs in the yarn, but that just adds to the beauty of hand-made, right? The skeins weren't always the same guage from color to color, but nothing too drastic. Weaving hid that much better than crochet or knit might have. All in all, very satisfied.

SCRATCHY

This yarn is such a disappointment. It is so scratchy I can hardly knit with it. I don't think it could be worn against the skin.

Pros

  • Color
  • Sturdy
  • Texture
  • yardage

Cons

  • Stiff

Best Uses

  • Hats
  • Rugs

Comments about SMC Northern Worsted with Wool:

I bought this yarn for a couple of hats I was planning. The yarn was softer than I was expecting for the price. It felt a little more wool-like than a lot of acrylic blends. It knitted up nicely though there wasn't a lot of give to it when I was doing more complicated sections though that may have been me knitting too tightly. I would buy again for accessories and sturdy projects.

Comments about SMC Northern Worsted with Wool:

The yarn is very soft and works up uniformly because the size is constant. The Carnation color was lighter than expected, but still a great color. I love that the yarn is washable.

Bought this yarn to make a sweater and found it to be a bit stretchy. Its acrylic/wool blend is washable which is why I bought it and hope that once I wash my sweater it firms up a bit. If I were to buy this yarn again,I would make mittens,scarves,etc.
