    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Merino Extrafine 85:

    Because the yarn (8-ply, I think) splits badly, I can't take it out and correct my mistakes. For a relative newbie at knitting, that's too bad.

    Crisp, bouncy wool yarn with soft handle

    By 

    from Kalamazoo, MI

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Great handle, soft, bouncy, shows patterns well

    Cons

    • Could be a bit softer, not as soft as Maratona

    Best Uses

    • Anything that needs a worsted weight wool

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Merino Extrafine 85:

    This yarn is a joy to knit with! I wanted something with a bit of energy for the ribbing and i-cord (brain beanie for the March for Science!), and this yarn is more than up to the challenge. It could be softer, but honestly, this yarn really is a great worsted weight wool that shows patterns well, is great to knit with, and can do anything asked of it.

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Merino Extrafine 85:

        Using this for a sweater and like the softness and definition, however, must be really careful because of the many plies of the yarn.....tends to split, but if careful not a problem.....

        Nice product

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Merino Extrafine 85:

        I really like the quality of this yarn for the price. It is supposed to be washable so I don't know yet if it will hold up after this child wears it and it needs washing. We'll see. The yarn is easy to work with and very soft. I can tell it will be warm, it's a nice weight wool. Not too bulky. I used black and red, with red being nice wide horizontal stripes. I see nice definition so the pattern is clearly visible and the red is a nice vibrant cherry red as shown in your picture. I would use this yarn again for any children's sweaters as it works up so well.

        Nicest Yarn I've Ever Worked With

        By 

        from Boston, MA

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Merino Extrafine 85:

        This is lovely, gorgeous yarn. It has a wonderful hand feel, and it knits up beautifully. It's 100% wool, but soft and not scratchy, and it has a really nice "bounce" to it that makes it just perfect.
