Color: Loden Verified Purchase
I purchased Lion Brand Yarn - Wool-Ease to finish up a sweater I had been working on, as I had run out of yarn. Crafters know that getting a different dye lot can ruin your project. It was a pleasant surprise that one year and a different dye lot later I received an exact match for the original yarn I had purchased.

Wool-Ease is a #4 worsted weight, although I find it to knit as a light worsted (not sport). The quality of all of Lion Brand yarns is consistently high. Wool-Ease washes and wears beautifully. A blend of 80% acrylic and 20% wool gives the luxurious feel of wool with the wear-ability and wash-ability of acrylic - and NO itchiness.

I thoroughly recommend this yarn for any apparel project (or otherwise) that you may be considering.

One thing to keep in mind - however - due to the high acrylic content of this yarn it does not block as well as wool. I would avoid doing any heavy lacework/openwork type patterns, as they won't want to block open. It cables beautifully and produces a lovely textured stitch as well. Wonderful pattern definition.

Color: Oxford Grey
Based on its popularity, I expected this to be a much better yarn. I got four skeins, two black and two cocoa. The yarn is under twisted, which makes the strands and the ply puffy. That allows for it to be a worsted weight yarn without using as much fiber. It also means that the yarn unravels and splits very easily. It looks great on the skein, but as soon as you start working with it, it's a mess.

The puffiness also means that when you are working a tighter stitch, such as when making a stuffed animal, it actually works up more like a DK yarn. I've attached a photo of two cords that I made using a simple two-strand technique. The brown one is this yarn and the grey one is Paton's spinrite DK yarn. You can see that both cords are almost the same thickness, even though the Lion Brand yarn is supposed to be worsted weight and should be a bit thicker. This is because the Lion Brand yarn compresses.

The texture is also really scratchy and when I work with it it causes my fingers to get sore and irritated, something that doesn't happen with other wool yarns.

The advantage of this yarn is that it is fairly inexpensive. That said, if you are getting it to work up something with a tight stitch, like a stuffed animal, you are not getting your money's worth.

Color: Cilantro Verified Purchase
I have made two aran knit sweaters so far using Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn and both have turn out well. Most of the people I knit for want a garment that is comfortable and machine washable. Most wool yarns are itchy and have to be handwashed. Wool-ease has enough wool to be warm but can still be machine washed and I don't get complaints about comfort. The colors I have used so far are Denim blue and Cilantro green. I am presently working on a sweater using the Mushroom brown color and it is looking really great.

Color: Blue Mist
I purchased this yarn in a brown blend to make myself a sweater in 2001. Ten years later (2011), except for some pilling of the fibers, that sweater is still in excellent shape.

I am so impressed with the handling and life of this yarn, that when I decided to make myself another sweater, I went straight to the Wool-Ease.

The yarn is easy to knit with, and can be machine washed and dried - according to the manufacturer. Personally, I hand wash and air dry all my good sweaters to maintain their shape.

I find my finished sweater to be very warm and comfy. I highly recommend this yarn for knitters (or crocheters) who want to create warm, easy care garments.

Color: Woods Multi Verified Purchase
Oddly enough, the photograph of this particular color highlights the variety of colors in the yarn, however in person, the colors seem far more "dull" and/or muted, the dominant color is more of a deep reddish-brown, then a lighter brown, and then a rather odd green, almost looks like "dirty green" - the color is probably best for a "rugged" item (e.g., manly scarf or afghan) - however the color is not the sole reason I removed one star. In addition to being a bit disappointed by the actual color(s), of the 9 skeins I purchased, all from the same lot (thank goodness), 8 of the 9 skeins had breaks (albeit tied/knotted) - I generally roll each skein before using it, but sometimes I don't...just depends on where I'm working (a ball tends to roll around whereas the skein stays put :) and felt it was absolutely necessary to roll each skein so that I could start a new roll at the breaks/ties. I ordered two other colors at the same time (a total of another 13 rolls) and only 1 of the 13 skeins had breaks/ties. Maybe just an issue with this particular lot, regardless, disappointing.

Color: Avocado Verified Purchase
This is my first time using wool ease. This yarn is soft and easy to knit with. This yarn is not scratchy/itchy. The yarn came individually wrapped and all the same dye lots. I bought eight skeins and used four so far. No ties/knots in any of them, no thin or thick spots. I will be buying more of this in different colors.
