Anyone used it? I have used the single ply merino, which I love, but am looking for something a litle more durable.

I want to knit Justina from Berroco and the pattern uses Berroco Pure Merino, which has a suggested needle size of 9. The 3 ply from 100purewool says needle size 6-9.

I don't have the pattern yet, so I don't know the exact gauge. Just know I cannot afford 14 skeins of Berroco Merino!

I just got in a co-op for this yarn and it is FABULOUS! it is soooo soft.
I got a gauge of 5 stitches per inch on size 7 needles.

Just an FYI-most yarn is dyed to order, so if you see a color in the 1 ply and you want it in the 3 ply, you should be able to get it!

Glad to hear you love the 3-ply. I just ordered it from a co-op too and was hoping that it would be a nice soft yarn. It looked like it from the pictures, but sometimes it is hard to tell.
