      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.

          Felts beautifully

              Comments about Ella Rae Classic Wool:

              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.

              Very nice yarn

              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.
