I boutght the gray heather and the blush heather (104) in order to try a more economical wool blend. I made a small scarf with the blush heather. It knitted up ok but felt sticky on the needles. I made mittens for my toddler with the grey but these seemed very hairy like the fibers just didn't stick together well and they very quickly lost their shape and became, I don't know, mushy. This yarn doesn't seem to work at all for kids and it didn't work for the scarf either because it's itchy. Overall, I was pretty disappointed. I really like the colors but the quality really is no good. No wonder it's so cheap.

I like everything about this yarn except for the fact that it tends to split. That doesn't bother me so much, but it made my husband crazy...and I think he has kind of sworn off of it. I will continue to use it.

I love this yarn... it does split, but it's worth it for the end product -- washable & indestructible. ***I'm looking for about 4-5 skeins of the butterscotch color (any dye lot).*** I didn't plan ahead for an afghan that I'm making for my grandson and the color has been discontinued! ;/. Any help would be appreciated!

I didn't like this yarn at first, but it has grown on me because of the color choices, the low cost, and machine wash & dry care. I first crocheted with it, but found it a bit too thick for crocheted garments except maybe sweater coats. I like knitting sweaters with it better than with some expensive wool yarns, because the elasticity allows a nice fit. But like others have noted, it tends to split--especially with sharp needles. I haven't noticed much pilling, however, especially compared to soft wools. But if you don't use fabric softener it does come across a bit plasticky after washing and drying. And the yarn is less cohesive in some colors, more in others.

This is the first time using Wool-Ease yarn. I am about 1/4 way done with an afghan, and based on the somewhat negative comments on the yarn quality and pilling I have read, I was wondering if it would be worth completing my project with this yarn, or to start over using yarn I have used and loved in the past (Bernat Berella "4"). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
