This is for the lay-knitter, not professionals. This is for people like me who might not necessarily be fiber experts despite being a crocheter or knitter for a long time, but need an honest opinion about yarn before they dive into a project with it.
The yarn: Ella Rae Lace Merino Worsted
218 yards, 200 meters
100 grams, 3.3 oz
- 100% merino wool
- Colorway: Caribbean sunrise in 12-24 month size,orchid in 2-4T size
The Project: Flax Sweater by Tin Can Knits
What I didn't like: I really can't complain at all. I ended up having to track down a second skein of the Caribbean Sunrise color to finish a sleeve on the baby's sweater which was a bit more difficult than I had expected. I ended up buying the second skein from a gracious stranger's stash on Ravelry, because that was the only place I could find it. (I originally bought it from someone having a sale on Etsy.)
Affordability: I only had to spend $10-12 per skein, which I think is incredibly reasonable for this quality of yarn.
Rating: I think this yarn is pretty, affordable, and the colors are so vibrant (the photo does NOT do these sweaters justice). 5/5 stars. I would definitely buy this again, and probably soon.
