I would like some yummy superwash worsted or at least DK yarn. Something like Wollmeise, Malabrigo or Manos Del Uruguay. Is there any out there that is washable and has beautiful colorways? But isn't sock weight. I have had no luck with google or searching the forum.

Lorna's Laces makes some beautiful worsted weight, handpainted, washable wool yarn! I saw (and petted) it last night at my LYS! :inlove:

I'm sure it's available a lot of places, but here's one store.

Yes, yes, yes!!!!! I have two colorways of LL worsted waiting for me to knit it up into beautiful, washable lovelies.

Definitely Lorna's. Yummy yummy...I can't think of any other superwash that compares.

Cascade 220 has a superwash line. It's lovely and less expensive than Lorna's Laces.

I have never used the LL worsted weight, but some of the colors are really pretty.

I am currently an ArtYarns Supermerino Junkie. I have used it for some kid's stuff and it is super soft after a wash and doesn't seem to pill. I have enough for a sweater for me, but haven't started yet.
