    Comments about "" Extra Merino Big:

    I was excited to get this yarn because it was so soft and washable. Sadly once I started to use it, I noticed the yarn snagging on my hook and the strands came apart very easily.

            My sweater pieces started to look a bit fuzzy as though there was early pilling occurring even before the pieces were assembled! It seems not to hold it's crisp appearance.

              Comments about "" Extra Merino Big:

              Extra Merino Big is a beautiful colorful yarn for hats or cowls/scarves. It knits super fast. 100g (2 balls of Yarn) will be enough for a hat. Hats are great in strong colors. You have a wide range of colors to choose from. The Extra Merino Big is soft and you can through the hat in the washer and it will not shrink or loose its shape. Just great for quick projects...

                  Comments about "" Extra Merino Big:

                  This is a dreadul yarn. I knit up two pairs of socks (I've knit MANY Many pairs of socks in the past)washed them as directed on the label, and they emerged flacid and dull and awful. Once dry, there was no improvement. Overall, a waste of time and money.
