I thought I’d post a “my experience with” on the Bernat Wool Blend yarn.
So far I’m loving it! I’m using it to make my hubby work socks. I’ve decided to knit it up on a tight gauge and sts completely blend into solid fabric (using the Charcoal colourway).
I also knitted in a roll of black elastic thread into the top and that seems to work fine.
My husband put on the nearly finished first sock and… I had to poke him repeatedly with the dpns to convince him I couldn’t/wouldn’t knit the sock while on his foot!
I find it quite soft but have not knit with any yarn over $4 a skein so some of you likely wouldn’t find it great.
I’m thinking it would make a fantastic yarn for a sweater.
Machine wash on cold, air dry
recommended 5mm/US 8 needles for 18sts by 24 rows for 4 inch swatch.
medium 4 weight (I think worsted, no? I can’t remember)
Solid colours mostly, I love the brown, and a few colourways but I wasn’t too attracted to those colourways.
For me it knits up fast with no real problems. I did drop one sts but managed to pull it up 15 rows no problem. I knitted 14 inches of 1 sock on Sunday, so to me that means its an easy yarn to work with!
Hope that helps!
