I got 2 balls of merino style, one to do a swatch for a design submission, and one to swatch for http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/ben/ben.html
this in hopes that by some chance it would be a close enough match even though the pattern calls for worsted.
so here are the 2 questions:
Does anyone else think it’s really not DK weight? They recommend size 5 needles and the swatch came out PERFECT on size 9s, plus the yardage is 123 yards and usually DK wool is like 145…
Does anyone have experience with this pilling? I have read lots of people had trouble with the washing and wearing of their Swish Superwash so was curious about that before I invested in sweater quantities.
