 Disappointed by Pure Wool line AGAIN! 1 of 14

I rarely feel bad enough about a yarn that I come back and leave a negative response but this is my 2nd bad experience with the Rowan's Pure Wool line. Both the 4 ply and the DK versions behave well UNTIL they are washed. Then the fabric becomes so limp that all stitch definition is lost. I understand that's the accepted compromise when using superwash wools but what is not acceptable is the amount the fabric grows measured in inches and completely changes the sizing. I did have some success with cautiously machine drying the 4-ply. But, this is baby gift and I doubt the parents will appreciate the involved care especially with a newborn in the house. Isn't that the point of using superwash, easier care? I expected more from Rowan... BTW, the dk project is a goner.

The yarn is simply lovely. I am knitting a pattern out of Knit Your Own Dog book which calls out this yarn. I should have asked if it was all wool, not super wash.

We all(hubby, daughters, son, friends) love this yarn! It's soft enough, and warm. I've knit a few fingerless mitts for family and friends, and everyone love it! Great stitch definition, great for cables, and most importantly, it's easy-care! I've washed it several times in washer, cold cycle, in lingerie bag, and even throw into dryer on low heat. It still came out looking like it's fresh off the needles. The reason I didn't give it 5 star is that it does tend to get splitty, especially after rip-back. Plus, it's not as fluffy soft as some other yarn, but hey.. it's superwash and durable!

Bought this for the Knit Your Own Dog book. I like the way it knits but does split a little bit.
