How soft is swish (from knitpicks)

I’m trying to make a nice pair of knittens that is made of wool and washable and soft–so I saw knitpicks makes a superwash merino called Swish. How would you rate it’s softness (1-10, 10 being the softest)?

Is it okay for next to hand wear w/out being scratchy?


I’d say somewhere around a 7 on that scale. It’s not the softest thing in the world, but I’m making a sweater out of it and it seems fine right next to my skin. It’s not at all itchy.

I’d agree with that. I’m making a sweater for my ds with it right now. Unless you have really sensitive skin, I think it would be fine for a pair of mittens.

its not mmmmalibrigo, but its soft enough. i think knitpicks has a winner there
