I know that I have mentioned my love for Worsted Merino Superwash by Plymouth Yarn in the past, but would like to talk more specifically about why I love it.
This yarn is a glorious 100% superwash fine merino wool in worsted weight. It is sold in a standard 218 yards per 100 grams skein and comes in 56 different lovely colors.
The first project I knitted with this yarn was a pair of worsted weight socks, which I adore and have been worn often with minimal pilling (oh how I hate pilling). I am currently working on my second project using this yarn, my Beatnik. The colorway I chose for my current project is a comforting navy blue with flecks of purple mixed in. The thing I like about this yarn the most is its elasticity, it is the most springy merino I have ever worked with!
Overall, on Ravelry people seem to enjoy this yarn as well, people seem to like the feel of it (it has this texture that I cannot describe, I would recommend taking a look for yourself) describing it as soft and high quality. There were some complaints of color bleeding, splitting, and pilling (don't put in dryer). I have had it bleed during hand washing, but the color did not fade much. I don't think that the yarn is splitty at all, but then again, I do not seem as bothered by splitting as some people. I have had it pill a little bit, but only after quite a bit of wear.
- Amazing stitch definition (especially with cables!)
- Super springy and elastic
- Pretty colorways
- Superwash and appears to wear well (at least for me)
- Rips out well (don't ask)
- Lovely merino smell!
- Ends unravel a lot
Final thoughts: I have really enjoyed working with this yarn personally. The texture of the yarn is irresistible to me. I always look forward to knitting with it and would certainly buy it again!
