I was introduced to this yarn at Coveted's Merrimack Yarns when I was looking for yarn to use for charity hats. It is soft and has a nice hand, and it makes warm, machine washable hats. I highly recommend it for times when the knitter wants to use wool and wants it to be machine washable.
This is y first time knitting with washable wool. So far, I like the softness and sooth feeling of the wool as I knit. It is perfect in gauge and the color is deep, well dyed. I would give it a 5 but haven't finished the sweater so don't know how it will block. But so far I am loving the yarn.
