Overall Merino 5 Rating: 4.8 out of 5 (4.8 based on 15 reviews)

5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Feels like cotton to me with the warmth of wool. I'm not a big fan of wool, I prefer the texture of silk and cotton. I especially love the twist to this yarn. It does spilt, but maybe that's more to do with how I knit than the yarn. Colorway bought--Midnight Oasis.

sturdy, tight twist yarn 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
This yarn is soft but durable, since it has a tight twist like sock yarn. It doesn't pill as easily as many merinos do. But it's still soft enough for babies.

Merino 5 Yarn Review 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Merino 5 is the most absolutely wonderful yarn for scarves. My ravelry membership, knitmosphere.ravelry.com, will display all of the scarves I knitted with Merino 5. Soft and easy to knit, this yarn beats all for men's scarves too. I love it and plan to continue knitting with it in the future.
