Yarn Review: Merino 130 Compact

A first!  A merino wool designed to reduce fuzziness and pilling!  

Merino 130 Compact

The above swatch was made using size US 4 (top) and US 5 (bottom) metal needles. This yarn is so much fun to work with!  It glides right of the needles, is not too slippery and is not at all splitty. The tight ply gives excellent stitch definition and makes this yarn so springy.  The fabric produced feels has a nice elasticity and a bit of weight to it and is next to skin soft.  We're going to put this yarn through some washings to see how well it holds up so stay tuned.
