I needed a specific color of Debbie Bliss cashmerino which was not available, so someone recommended I use this yarn as a substitute which had the color. I was very pleased with it. This yarn is very soft to the touch, can be used against a newborn's skin, knits up very nicely, has a soft drape, yet does not loose it's shape and has great stitch definition. I will use. I feel this is a good all season yarn and definitly will use it again.

The striped sweater I knit with this came out great. The yarn is soft, easy to work and it knits quickly for the weight.
The only thing was that after I wore the sweater a couple of times the yarn got fuzzy, which looks messy in the area where the 2 stripe colors meet. And it pills in the under arm area and wherever there is friction.
So it's a bit disappointing because the sweater won't look good very long and at this price, I'd expect more wear.

    Comments about 9.49 Wool Cotton:

    I have made many items from this yarn, most recently a hat for my daughter. She has very sensitive skin and finds this blend of fibers to be so comfortable she hasn't wanted to take the hat off. Next project will be a little girl's sweater. I crochet and knit and use this yarn for both. Using this yarn is a real pleasure.

    This is a great yarn for mid-weight sweaters. It comes in great colors and is very colorfast. I hand wash my sweaters so I can't speak for machine washing. It twists a little bit but not really a factor.

              Comments about 9.49 Wool Cotton:

              I like the yarn. It appears to work up fine, but watch for knots in each ball! That can be annoying when you run into one after only two inches of work!

              This is a great yarn to work with. It is soft and supple. I hope that once it is washed it is still as soft. My only complaint is that every skein had a section that was spliced together. Because I had to weave these ends in, it took more yarn than the directions called for.

                Comments about 9.49 Wool Cotton:

                Rowan's wool cotton is the perfect yarn, a go-to yarn for a slew of projects you might want to do. It is a great weight for three season wear. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor garments. I love the colorways of which I choose what a colleague calls, 'coastal' colors. I have made at least six garments with this yarn and am planning more!

                The striped sweater I knit with this came out great. The yarn is soft, easy to work and it knits quickly for the weight.
                The only thing was that after I wore the sweater a couple of times the yarn got fuzzy, which looks messy in the area where the 2 stripe colors meet. And it pills in the under arm area and wherever there is friction.
