Yesterday I received my order from Knitpicks and the yarn is marvelous. $3.29 a 110 yard / 50 gram ball of worsted "Swish" 100% Superwash Merino in Black and Jade. The yarn is for a specific project and it is one of the softest wool yarns I have ever touched. Usually wool is harsh and makes me itch, I don't like wool clothes for that reason, but knitting with this there is almost zero itch factor (I think I might be allergic) and when worked up it still feels soft to the touch. The colors are gorgeous, rich and deep with little or no variation from ball to ball.

I liked it so much that I ordered another six balls in two more colors for another project and if I can find the proper colors in a yarn weight I like I may purchase from them again.
