        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.

        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.

              This was great to work with. I crocheted a prayer shawl and it was very nice to work with. I haven't washed it yet so can't comment on that

              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.

              Comments about SMC Northern Worsted with Wool:

              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.

                  Got this on sale because of the great yardage and low price for a Christmas sweater for my dad. Great yarn- easy to work with, soft, warm, great stitch definition. I would definitely buy again, and I might be for a few upcoming presents!

                        like the feel of it after item is done.

                                  I'm enjoying using this yarn for a Great American Afghan. It held up well when I had to take out most of a square and re-knit.
