Overall American Merino Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (4.7 based on 21 reviews)

soft and squishy! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love this yarn! I'm working on a crocheted linen stitch scarf using multiple colors and it is working up super soft and squishy. I will definitely be purchasing more as I'm already plotting what else I want to make with it.

You cannot go wrong with Koigu! It's very consistently beautiful to knit with. The service is always swift.

1st Time 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
This is the first time I've purchased and knit Koigu yarn, American Merino or otherwise. In all fairness I would have to say the colors are nice, knits up well. Most patterns I looked at 'suggested' a 4/5 needle. I found with these sizes, my swatches were a little stiff, but with a 7, 8, even a #9, the shawls and scarves I knitted 'softened' and draped better. At some point I will use Koigu 'KPPPM' in order to compare the two yarns.

Nice yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I bought two skeins. I wish I bought three. Keep in mind that these skeins have less yardage than most skeins. I haven't knit them yet.

I bought this in the hopes that it would be similar to the more expensive Koigu Merino Crepe. It does have a great color way but it is no where near as soft. It would also be nice if they made the skeins a bit larger by about 5 yards. One skein isn't enough to make a skull cap beanie for an adult
