Extra Merino

Soft yarn which knits up with nice bounce and great stitch definition. Minor splitting during knitting. Rich colors.

I'm knitting a pullover vest with this yarn. It does not have the soft hand that I associate with Merino - but I know that superwash is never as soft. It's a bit splitty, and, at this point (I'm about 1/3 way done) is a little "crunchy" and very springy. I'm hoping that blocking will relax the energy a bit. I needed a superwash yarn, because my Mom puts EVERYTHING in the washing machine. Here's hoping the end result will be fantastic.

    Comments about "" Extra Merino:

    I found this to be a wonderful yarn, reasonably priced, great color, great color selection (at the time), nice to knit with, no problems (spitting, knots, etc.) while knitting with it, beautiful results, very soft. I used the yarn to make several colorwork hats as gifts. Gift recipients were very pleased.

    I made a cowl in Bowling Green (Ohio) University colors for a friend's daughter who attends there. I liked the softness of the yarn and think it's perfect for the project, but I don't know if I would ever purchase it again.

    Used this yarn in a sweater pattern with Celtic knotwork. The cables positively explode off the background! Lovely soft round yarn. The only negative would be that it likes to split a wee bit.

      Am using this yarn to make beanies for some colleagues. For the price it's a good value. There are many colors to choose from, though to my eye the colors seem flat. Personally. I prefer yarn with more twist, and more saturated color. I like that it is 100% merino. I would call this yarn serviceable and ordinary.

        Comments about "" Extra Merino:

        I bought this yarn to knit Norwegian-style mittens. I haven't worn the mittens enough to know how it will wear, but it does have a tight twist, so I'm thinking it will hold up. The tight twist also gives it good stitch definition---it is perfect for this project.

        Comments about "" Extra Merino:

        I made a sweater for my grandson. It was relatively expensive to use for a growing child's clothing. My biggest complaint was that one skein was absolutely full of joined strands and knots. It also splits when working with it. There are too many other yarns to bother to order it again. When I talked to a customer service rep, she said she'd replace the skein, but that didn't happen.

        This was a nearly perfect yarn to substitute for the very expensive yarn called for in a Vogue pattern. It's reasonably priced and just the right weight for the project I'm working on. The color is intense and the yarn feels very good in the hand. My only complaints are that the yarn splits easily and this means extra care to make sure the needle goes all the way through the loop. Also, there are more knots than you would expect.

          One of the skeins had an unacceptable number of joining knots and raveled stretches. It's also wound differently than most yarn, so stockinette fabric has a different, not objectionable, look.
