Australian Superfine Merino by Cleckheaton 8ply Yarn is rated 4.619 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh so soft! This yarn is incredible. I don't normally work with wool because it irritates my skin, but this is so incredibly smooth and soft that it doesn't bother me at all. I 110% recommend this to anyone wanting a high quality soft yarn with the wear and warmth of wool. It is a bit pricey, but worth it for those extra-special projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft, scrumptious yarn! I bought this yarn in Australia last year and was thrilled to see it being offered by Joann. It's a very luxurious merino -- people who think all wool is scratchy won't believe this is wool. It's expensive but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful yarn! I made several hats from this yarn and it was like knitting with strands of heaven! So soft and it glides over the needles effortlessly! I was knitting with the Takumi bamboo double points and I had never been happier knitting in my life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality Bought this a few weeks ago and absolutely love it! The soft colors and quality of the wool is wonderful. I knit and have begun weaving. A joy to work with for both hobbies. Look forward to an expanding color line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Soft I love how soft this yarn is. I have sensitive skin and have a hard time finding yarn that is suitable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on the hands! I crochet stuffed animals for profit and the way this yarn is made it ends up being rather springy. This is excellent for my style of crochet - which is super tight - because it doesn't end up causing my hands to cramp as I work. Plus, it's just super soft to the touch. I'm in love with this product and only wish that JoAnn carried a wider variety of colors (since this product comes out of Australia and I can't find another supplier to purchase a broader assortment from here in Minnesota).
