Ella Rae Superwash

I've had great success with the Ella Rae Extrafine Merino Lace so when they introduced a superwash worsted I was interested. But this yarn has a different twist than the lace so I bought a bag of this yarn a few months back and Chris knit up a swatch which I then machine washed and dried to test before I decided whether to stock it or not.

The swatch is pictured here. It did not pill or shrink. It feels pretty darn good....not as "slick" as some superwash yarns. This yarn features some pretty "heathers".

If you're interested in a heavier gauge, check out the Ella Rae Superwash Bulky

I knit the swatch at 4.5 sts/inch on a US 8. It could easily be knit at 5 sts/inch on a US 7.

These skeins feature 200 yds and it retails for $10.50/sk.
