Warm and soft

Wools are usually too itchy for me to work with or wear but this is super smooth, soft and glorious. I used this one to make a shawl that a friend will wear as the sun goes down on her wedding day.

I never want to knit with anything else 😭

I’m working up the westknits Pierre shawl with this yarn and it’s so gorgeous and soft!!

There are a few small points I think are important; but they haven’t changed my feelings about the yarn itself. First off: this is on the thinner side of DK, so I might suggest only ordering one ball first to see if you can get gauge (I just went up a needle size and everything was fine). Second, I noticed a very tight twist in the plies, and it does show up in the fabric. My project has a lot of texture, so I don’t mind, but it’s very noticeable in stockinette and rib stitch! And last, a very small note, but I ordered quail and it is a touch more purple than it appears online. Not a problem at all for me, but just something to note! I’m giving it 5/5 stars because the price is so good, it makes up for these very small points!

Overall, the yarn is soft, the colours are vibrant and I’m very happy with it!! I can’t wait to finish this project and get it blocked!! (And then order more of this yarn and start another project 😬)

Merino!

I gave it a try for my hubby’s hat. At first it was difficult to start with DPN but it was a few rows after casting on. It was squishy soft. My hubby liked it much that he could wear it to work with heavy AC anytime, even during summer. I’ve noticed it got fuzzy and easily pulled after several wears. Durability is questionable. It wouldn’t be my top choice for merino but good for budget.

Very nice!

I bought this yarn to make a cardigan for my Dad's 50th birthday, and I'm loving working with it so far! It's incredibly soft, and the colour and thickness are very consistent. Also, of all the yarns I could find in this material, it's the best price. I only wish there were more bright colours available! Would 100% buy again!

Very nice yarn!

As per the info. shown, this LB collection-Superwash Merino is super soft, luxurious, very flexi and can create a nice and neat drape. At beginning, it's a bit slippery and too thin for me, as I've just finished my bulky weight yarn project. However, once in a while that I get to this yarn, it easy to knit, no split during knit and I can work up quickly :) I also stock up 5-6 color now for my next project, really love this yarn.
