This is one of the most wonderful yarns I have used. It is soft, knits up very evenly and is sooooo soft. Kids especially love it. Perfect for babies and little ones as it is machine washable. My only criticism is the limited range of colors. While the shades it comes in are lovely, bright clear colors; they are mostly 'kid colors' (if you kniow what I mean. Would love to see it in some darker, more soophisticated colors soon !!Great Yarn though and good yardage

I loved the soft texture of this yarn. The colors were very bright which happened to be just what I was looking for. I made Jil Eaton's Hankie Pankie Blankie for my new baby and after pulling it out of the wash, all of the tassels and pompoms had shredded into long fibers. I tied them as tightly as possible but pulling too hard on this singles yarn will break it like roving. So sad about the state of the blanket. I will be redoing the little decorative bits around the blanket with Cascade 220 superwash. I think this yarn would probably be okay for anything knit rather tightly but I don't want to try it for myself as it is not a lot of yardage for the money.

        Caveat: I haven't yet knit with this yarn. However out of the box it looks and feels amazing. I have the most sensitive neck in the entire world (which makes knitting difficult!) and this yarn passes the neck test with flying colors. Colors are lovely and similar to as shown on the website (I got navy and gold). Beautiful squish texture, can't wait to make a cowl out of this.

          My daughter wanted a new ear warmer that isn't scratchy enough to require being lined. This yarn knitted up quickly and evenly. No knots at all in the skein. It is so soft and everything other reviews said. Highly recommend this yarn!

            I ordered this for a scarf--wanted a soft, washable merino. Description says worsted with a size 8 needle. I found the scarf to be way too dense so went up to a size 10. Better but not as soft as i had hoped. I consider this yarn to be verging on bulky.

              I used this yarn in a tapestry. It's great for adding volume without being too overbearing. Makes a lovely soumak weave.

                  Comments about JIL EATON MinnowMerino:

                  I loved working with this yarn but it does demand attention to every stitch if you don't want splitting. Because it is so loosely spun, I sometimes twisted the working strand as I was knitting. Use another yarn to seam.
