Easy Care is a classic wool yarn in 100% merino wool from the Danish yarn manufacturer Mayflower. The yarn is incredibly soft, and since it is made of merino wool, it is also scratch-free and pleasant to work with. Easy Care is available in an impressive color scheme with a variety of beautiful colors, ranging from the more subdued to neon colors - so there is definitely a color that fits your project.
The wool is extremely comfortable against the skin, 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.
All the yarns from the Easy Care line are superwash-treated.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

I had this stacked away for a long time, but I finally got around to use this yarn. It is nice to work with and it shows great in relive patterns and cables. I'm slightly allergic to wool and sometimes when kitting wool I get a rash on my hands. This didn't happen with this yarn, so I could work on it for longer hours than I normally doo with wool. The coolers are a bit subdued, but they come out nice when combined with each other. Not everything needs to be screaming bright.
Beautiful soft yarn, easy to work with. I made a colorwork sweater and the resulting fabric was beautiful and even. I used red and white and it is COLORFAST. I was so nervous when it came time to block. I was worried after I soaked it that I'd have a red and pink sweater. I was so pleased with this project and THIS YARN. Quality beautiful yarn at an awesome price and I'm pretty sure I even got it on sale. Thank you!
I know it says "Easy Care" right on the tin, but I was surprised anyway when I washed a swatch in relatively hot water and it didn't shrink. This stuff is sturdy, soft, easy to work with (no splitting!), and comes in beautiful colors. I used Midnight Blue, and it is that perfect shade that is dark enough to be muted but still blue enough to not look black in shadows.
This yarn glides on the needles, and it mixes like a dream with other fibers like mohair. The colors are lush and even the pale colors seem to glow with richness. With Hobbii's affordable prices, I was able to buy several color combinations, and have more in my cart as I type this. A+
Hands down the best Wool I have ever worked with in the 20+ years I've worked with yarn. I absolutely adore this yarn and I want to use it in all of my winter wearables. So soft and squishy. My husband and kids even remarked how soft it was. Highly recommend.
