I decided to leave a comment looking on the previous one. So far Louet Gems is my favorite yarn, especially for kids projects. This yarn is spun very well (maybe it is the reason it seems like DK in the hank but end up as worsted in a project). First it looked like cotton for me too but felt really like soft merino in a project. I made a baby set this year for my baby granddaughter (on the picture) and it was just perfect: soft to baby skin, machine washable, dryable and hold its shape very well. I started crochet the blanket with 5.5 mm hook and yarn was splity and I thought I wouldn't be able to end it. Then I changed the hook to 6.5mm and the yarn magically stopped being splitty and it was worked up very quickly.
I just want everybody to love this yarn!

I used Louet Gems Worsted to make crocheted fingerless mittens, which turned out very nicely.

However, the yarn was very irritating to use because of constant splits. Also, the violet was a dull shade, not at all like the photo, and the Sunset was orangy-pink, not light red like the photo. Worst of all, the yarn is DK, not worsted. And it felt like cotton, not springy like Merino wool.

    Comments about LOUET Gems Worsted Overstock Colors:

    I bought 2 hanks of "mint" from Grandpa's Garage last year while at WEBS, mainly due to the price. I finally got around to winding it this past weekend and began crocheting a pair of mittens. As of right now this is my favorite merino. I love the feel of it as it runs over my fingers and the feel of it as the finished project. Am ordering more now.

    Made fingerless mitts for my grandson. Nice texture and easy to work with. The one color I purchased for a Santa hat, appearing red online, was actually a deep pink, so I was unable to use it for the Santa hat.

      • as with wool, have to be careful to catch all

      Best Uses

        Comments about LOUET Gems Worsted Overstock Colors:

        If it is scratchy, wash gently...use hair conditioner....1 tablesp for a hat, etc. let it soak a minute or so. Rinse gently....and lay to dry.

        This reduces the itchiness.

        Pros

        • Smooth & itch free
        • Tight, but not too tight twist

          Best Uses

            Comments about LOUET Gems Worsted Overstock Colors:

            First time using the Louet Gems worsted weight, but have used both sport and fingering in the past. I love the smoothness of the merino. After a good soak, the yarn relaxes beautifully into a a very nice, dense fabric. I haven't machine washed, and probably never will. I do use the dryer though, both for a few minutes at the beginning and sometimes for a few minutes at the end for a little fluffing.

            Comments about LOUET Gems Worsted Overstock Colors:

            I'll be returning this, as not only is it not a worsted weight, but the colors are very different from what I expected (I know it's difficult to read colors correctly on different devices). I had ordered as a gift for my daughter-in-law for Christmas, and I had to go out and buy a replacement at the last minute.

            Comments about LOUET Gems Worsted Overstock Colors:

            Louet Gems is my favorite yarn by far, especially for kids project: very soft, washable, dryable and hold its shape and look very well after many washes. The only drawback I could notice of worsted yarn - if I use a hook thinner than 6 mm it splits a little bit. Other than that - very reliable yarn.
