Woolease Thick and Quick yarn

I purchased a pattern that recommended Woolease Thick and Quick yarn, so I ordered that yarn for the project. The sweater turned out beautifully! This yarn is nice to work with and the finished product feels soft to the touch. I will use it again in the future.

Elegant sweater

I liked the designer's original Wool-Ease colors, but decided to make my sweater in Barley and Jam Cookie yarns instead. I am very pleased with the lacy stained glass effect against the muted base yarn. I hadn't ever knit a sweater top-down before, but it turned out nicely. The sweater is warm and cozy, too - great for northeastern winters.

My Seven Year Old Son Loves it

My son is knitting a striped, garter stitch blanket with this and he really enjoys it.

I love this yarn!

I am a newbie to crochet. This yarn worked up quickly into a queen size blanket which is very encouraging to a new crocheter like myself; especially on such a large project. It took a couple weeks including wait time on more yarn because it was decided to go bigger. The color selection is great, for this blanket I used Spiced Apple and it's just beautiful with subtle tonal variations of the burgundy and little flecks of lighter reddish burgundy, oatmeal and a darkest forest green, nearly black. The colors looks more high end, I think, than a homogenous solid color. It's so pretty! It turned out very soft with nice drape using a large hook in hdc-blo. Such a nice and meditative project to do. I'm including a WIP photo 9 skeins into it, finished is about double this size. The recipient seemed to really like it. I'm very happy with it.

Wool Ease Thick & Quick in a nutshell

Wool Ease Thick & Quick is a yarn that I have been using since I started to learn knitting and crocheting during the pandemic. I think it’s a decent yarn quality for the price, especially when I find it on sale. I like the array of colors and prints available and I find it to be a useful and often beautiful part of my stash. I use it for everything from afghans to shawls and accessories like cowls and slippers. My biggest wish is that Wool Ease Thick & Quick were more durable. With use and washing (according to the label directions) I find it tends to pill up very quickly and I find that disappointing after putting so much work into my items. After all, this isn’t so cheap a yarn to purchase for the amount one receives. The yarn is only 20% wool (the rest is acrylic of course) and I find myself wishing there was a higher wool content. I also think the color palette is missing a few, great, basic colors like some simple jewel tones (royal purple, cobalt blue, etc.).
This yarn has great stitch definition and can look quite beautiful when an item is new, I just wish it had better staying power. In short, I think it’s a good yarn that could be great if only it had a higher mix of natural fibers.

beautiful colours and texture

I'll be using these to make a granny square blanket - the colours are a little more muted in person (the fig colour is definitely more of a deep purple than the more "pink" colour pictured) but still beautiful. The yarn is soft and works up quickly. The colours in the picture below are, from left to right, Fig, Air Force, Fisherman and Succulent.
