Fisherman's *is* a bit scratchy. It's not super soft or luxurious soft like the expensive wool yarns. So you'll need to consider what you're going to make and decide whether you can live with a little bit of scratchiness. It does soften up over time but always retains a little coarseness.
I've mostly used Fisherman's to make wool soakers (to go over cloth diapers) for my sons when they were little. The soaker only touched their skin at the thighs and waist, and the coarseness never seemed to bother them. It never caused any redness or irritation even when they were newborns.
Fisherman's 100% wool yarn is very easy to dye using kool-aid dyes. It holds the color well and can be dyed brightly or lightly, depending on your preference. We ended up with some absolutely beautiful greens, blues, and pinks.
Because it's natural, untreated yarn, anything made with Fisherman's can't be put in the washer but will need to be handwashed. Unless, of course, you want to felt the item, which I've done a few times too. The items always felted up nicely and ended up 1/3 to 1/2 their original size.
In response to other reviewers: Is it the highest quality merino or wool? No, but for that the price will go up and the yardage will go down. You get what you pay for and this is good value for the price as long as your expectations are reasonable.
