Beautiful and a Show Stopper! 5 out of 5
Color #114 is incredible! I saw it displayed in a store as a cowl and I stopped in my tracks. I've learned that the best way to deal with handwash knits is to use Euclan, a no rinse solution. Put the item in a lingerie bag in the spin cycle only and dry flat. Super easy.

Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
Post Review after Washing Garment 3 out of 5
I have knitted 8 toddler sweaters using Malabrigo Worsted as gifts and just recently handwashed 2 items for my daughter ( a pullover and a shrug)and just a disclosure about cleaning your items. I would recommend that you turn your garment inside out. I can't say that pilling is the right term to use, it's more like the yarn fuzzes. It's neither a bad or good thing from my opinion. Still love the yarn and the value.

Simply Delicious! 5 out of 5
The hottest pattern right now in our town is the Yvonne vest/shawl from Cocoknits. It calls for alpaca which was too casual looking for me so I ended up using only 4 skeins of Graphite to produce a shorter and tighter knit vest. I am so in love with this yarn and wish it was more affordable to produce something for my toddler daughter. But then again, you can always repurpose yarn can't you?

Plymouth - Worsted Merino Superwash
A new Favorite 5 out of 5
Knitting up color #26, and I keep referring to the label to make sure it's 100% merino wool b/c I would swear there was silk in it- such a beautiful sheen to it! It knits up beautifully with kind of an elasticty soft feel and has a beautiful sheen that you typically would not find with merino wool. I have knitted other types of superwash merino wool before and others have been spongy soft ( not a bad thing). Really in love with this yarn and have had not pilling problems so far.

Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
Beautiful! Soft! 5 out of 5
What a great deal for incredibly beautiful yarn. I ordered the Deja Vu color and it was very comparable to Plymouth Yarn Trabajos Del Peru 100% extra fine merino wool I used to knit a toddler sweater last month. It was $14 for 147 yd/ us needle 9, and this was only $10.50 for 220 yd/us needle 9. Can't wait to knit it up!
