Easy Care is yet another delicious, classic wool yarn in 100% merino wool from the Danish yarn manufacturer Mayflower. Like the name suggests, the yarn is thicker than the other two yarns of the series - Easy Care and Easy Care Classic. However, the yarn is just as soft as the other two yarns in the series, it's also itch free as well as comfortable to knit. The color pallet is impressively wide and spans from downtoned colors to bright and frisky ones - needless to say, there is definitely a color for your project.
In addition to being extremely comfortable against the skin, the wool is superwash-treated, making it very useful for everyday use, especially for baby and children's wear, as it can withstand wool washing in the machine at 40°C (104°F) and tumble dry at low temperatures. Moreover, this edition, Easy Care Big, is so thick that you will be able to quickly complete your projects.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/
I was a little scared to be working with wool because of how scratchy it can get, but this merino is so soft and gorgeous! I ordered two skeins to make a beanie, and only ended up needing one and a little bit, so I'm excited to see what I can do with the leftovers!
This is a beautiful Merino yarn and I would absolutely use it again. It was high quality. No knots or flaws. Although it is worsted it felt like a thin worsted weight. This was my first Hobbii purchase and it did not disappoint!
I've never worked with 100% wool before and this yarn was a delight to work with. I made a baby blanket with it that just needs blocking now. Worth the price for how soft and easy to work with it's been. I'm glad I ordered extra.
I am obsessed with this yarn. It is soooo soft and once hand washed, it’s even softer and fluffy! Definitely my favorite worsted merino wool option. Wish more colors were in stock, but I’ll just have to check back.
A beautiful yarn that i got two complementary colours of in a Lucky Bag, Burnt Ochre & Dark Aquamarine. Nice & soft, AND machine washable AND dryable, so they have gone straight into my “knit presents stash
