the patons. It's a million times softer and it dosen't pill nearly as much as WOTA does.

Patons is my choice.... 223 yards per skein, soft and colors are great. I use it for felting/fulling and it works perfectly.

I don't know if Patons is that much softer than WOTA, but while knitting it feels "tougher" (like it will wear better). IMO, Patons does *not* feel like Merino - its not nearly as soft as KP Merino Style - but it's not unpleasant, either.

I've never used WOTA but I've heard that it pills. I looove Patons! It was my first all wool yarn and I really liked it. It felted well, too.
