Overall Worsted Merino Superwash Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (4.6 based on 34 reviews)

Great yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I substituted this yarn in a pattern that called for Swans Island, and I have no regrets. I used the light gray and it has a soft heather look that is very attractive. It knits up beautifully with a nice stitch definition that's soft and a little squishy. I prefer this yarn over Cascade 220 and will absolutely use it again.

Outstanding Service!!! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I'm kind of a OCD cleanly knitter... I place all my projects into bags and have all my yarn that I'm not currently using in nice clean totes and so when I order I like to also receive yarn that is kept clean from freight dirt and sometimes I haven't received such service even upon requesting it...so when I ordered from Jimmybeans I wasn't going to hold my breath or anything I was just going to hope that they'd take the same care as I would have...WELL,...I was pleasantly surprised when I received my order not only did it come within 2 DAYS of placing the order BUT they package it in a bag to keep it clean from freight dirt!! I am VERY HAPPY With the service and product care I've received from Jimmybean's and I will make sure I do more of my shopping from them in the future!!!

Softness and Stitch Definition in a Superwash 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I'm knitting for a baby, so softness and superwash are my primary concerns. I know this mom - if I say handwash, she might decide to throw it in the machine anyways. I can't say enough great things about this yarn. Leave it to superwash merino to save the day. Yes I've found softer merino than this, but I don't think I've found a softer superwash. The colors are lovely, and the stitch definition is crisp. The finished product will hardly need to be blocked, the stitches are so uniform. This yarn makes my day - knits up effortlessly into a professional-looking product.

Soft and bouncy 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I think this yarn will turn out to be my replacement for the sadly now-discontinued Berroco Pure Merino. I find them very similar.
