I bought one skein of Plymouth Merino Superwash to test it before buying enough to make the Big Easy sweater. I really enjoyed knitting with it. Comfortable in my hands, soft outcome, nice stitch definition. I look forward to using it again. I made a cowl & mitts to test it, and so far, so good. I'll wait for a good washing to decide for sure for the sweater (wondering if it will pill too much).
