This popular yarn from Juniper Moon is 100% wool is organic and features 382 yards/sk.

Recommended knit at 5.5 - 6 sts/inch, it has a lovely hand and nice twist. It is a great value for a sweater and has great stitch definition.

I knit the swatch pictured below up using US 5, 6, 7 & 8, just to see! And I got exactly the range that the label says - from 5.5, 5.75, 5.75 and 6 stsinch!

You can tell if you click on the swatch to see a larger image that the 8 is more open than the rest and the US 5 is quite tight at the top of the swatch. I would probably use a US 5 for a hat or fingerless mitts and either a US 6 or 7 for a sweater.

The two sweaters pictured, Lisabet and Tove show both how wonderful the yarn is for colorwork as well as for stitch definition (if you click on the pink model, Tove, you'll see a close up of the stitch).

Anyway, the swatch was lovely to knit - and the customers who have knit with this yarn usually come back for more.

In addition to it being merino and organic, it is also MACHINE WASAHABLE at a cool temp (not above 80 degrees). This is NOT a "superwash" yarn, but is gently machine washable.

If you're looking for this same yarn in a heavier gauge, check out Santa Cruz.

And what a value with 382 yards for just $14.99/sk!!
