Rated 1 out of 5 by from Watch out for the NEW LOW QUALITY wool ease by lion brand! I purchased 15 skeins of the lion brand Wool Ease in wheat. The first nine skeins that I used were soft and beautiful. Then started using the last six skeins and I thought it was odd that there was so much more of the intertwining black thread, and they were made like wires. I then looked at my remaining yarn only to discover that it has half the amount of wool, and is very poor quality. Now 2/3 of my blanket is a different color than the rest and one side is soft the other is not. What a waste of time and money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from difficult to undo crochet projects in crochet, you pull the string to undo or backup in your work. this wool ease (for me anyway) has turned out to be difficult to do. you can't just tug on it because it latches onto itself. i mean, i do tug on it, but i break the yarn. it has a velcro feel. which is odd because ive used full wool yarn and havent had that issue, and used full acrylic and also havent had the issue. maybe this yarn has shorter fibers and therefor more ends sticking out to latch on to itself. unfortunate since my elder crochet friends seem to really enjoy this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice yarn I bought the blush heather and used one skein to make a scarf consisting of 11 rows, each being approximately 154 chains, and the scarf having an alternating single crochet/double crochet pattern. I am a beginner and used the larger-sized lion brand yarn to make such a scarf as well, but this yarn seemed a little harder for me to use for like the first three rows due to my hook catching on separate pieces of the strand of yarn several times. However, the scarf turned out quite lovely. Overall, the yarn was soft, warm, and of a nice color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall, a tiny bit rough. A slight bit rough, however blocking fixes that easily. It's a great beginner yarn, cheap and easy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color Natural Heather is darker than pictured. The pink chosen to go with it would have looked nice with the lighter color as shown on line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sent multiple dye lots from Jo Ann Fabrics I was excited to get this yarn on sale. I opted for curbside pick-up. When I returned home I found one less skein than I ordered and the yarn skeins were not of the same dye-lot. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT to me as I was anxious to start his baby blanket project for an upcoming baby shower. Now I need to make an inperson trip to the store and the yarn is sold out at every location I can drive to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is not white, it is metallic Starlight I ordered this for curbside pickup and it was not plain white. I couldn’t see the silver thread online and nothing in the description mentioned Starlight (metallic name on on There was literally no way to tell that this was not plain white. I like wool ease but no one really wants this yarn. They have oodles of balls of this stuff and nothing in plain white. I don’t know if the Joann in Redmond even carries plain white, as there was nothing to exchange. I am keeping it for now in hopes that the next city over has some so I can exchange it for white, thus retaining the sale price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent! The first ball was fine and it knitted up well. It is a heavy worsted yarn. Ball two has been a nightmare. It’s full of “knots” where lengths are joined together. I came across so far two areas of frayed yarn. I had to take out a row because the yarn is not useable. I’m now pulling out lengths of yarn prior to starting a row so I won’t have to stop in the middle of a row and go back and start the row again. It’s an inexpensive yarn but I expected better quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Splits easily Someone recommended it as a popular item and that it was soft. It's kind of soft but the wool makes it feel prickly and rough and the threads split very easily, making it really hard to croquette.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it for Aran knitting I'm using the natural color for my latest project. It gives good stitch definition and is a very cozy weight and perfectly consistent in weight. I've made a sweater years ago in it and still wear that one as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite 4 wt yarn I love Wool Ease! It's a soft, warm wool blend but machine washable and dryable. I've used several of the colors and have had no problems with any of it. I actually prefer 5 wt yarn and I miss the Wool Ease Chunky #5 that was discontinued. The thick and quick #6 is good too but is too big for some projects. Give Wool Ease a try if you haven't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft and easy to knit I am a beginner knitter with lots of problems with sizing. This is the first worsted weight yarn that I have used that doesn’t leave my gauge swatches enormous. I made some nice warm mittens for my husband and will use this yarn again. The only criticism I have is that it does get very thin in spots. It did not impact the final product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Yarn! This was my first crochet project and there was lots of crocheting, pulling out and re-doing, and the yarn held up. Not baby soft but not uncomfortably scratchy either. Color here is natural heather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this yarn, but... I love this yarn, but out of the 8 skeins I have purchased in the past few months, only one skein was actually the full 85 grams. The rest were 1-5 grams short. So if you are planning a large project, you may want to take this into consideration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great yarn for so many different projects! Lion Brand is my "go to" yarn but I especially love Wool-Ease. Not finished with my poncho; however, it's looking really great. I have made hats for #hatsnothate with this yarn, too. I wholeheartedly recommend this yarn

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice wool blend yarn I just finished a capelet with the Dark Rose Heather color. It came out beautifully. Nice color and drape. The yarn was easy to work with and I did not have any snags or knots throughout my project. I also have a baby blanket in progress with the Blush and Rose Heather colors; also coming along very nicely with no problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 skeins, 3 dyelots, obviously Yarn is a bit splitty, but okay and 3 stars on its own. The problem is that I was sent 3 skeins, 2 of which were opened and repackaged. That might not be such a big problem, but I'm looking at 3 dye lots. Oh, please. I am going to have to try to blend or deal with stripes. Probably stripes, ugh. If a knowledgeable crafts person had done the packing, or the packer had even minimal instructions, this would not have happened. Mixing obviously different dyelots is a huge knitting no-no!
