Hi Julie,

Buggers! You are right...it is MERINO STYLE 100% Merino DK Wool.
http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemi...n_display.aspx

Well, I guess that explains the modest pricing???

Well, that is a lesson learned! MERINO STYLE is code for "not really merino'????

Why then does the label say 100% merino wool...and right under the words MERINO STYLE!

So "recommended for felting' on the label...is code for "it is not as soft as you would want for a sweater".

I will eventually knit one of the reds for myself, and will handwash the finished garment, maybe add a teensy bit of Downy to the rinse water...

Thanks for the info!
