If you have worked with Persian wools such as Paternayan or Colonial Persian before and liked the finished product but wished that they were nicer to work with, this is a great option. It is similar to those wools but it's super soft against your hands as you work with it and not itchy, or scratchy at all like the Persian wool can be. This softness means the merino wool is not as durable as Persian wool, and I wouldn't recommend it for things like carpets, kneelers or items that in general will have very heavy wear. Of course this isn't a problem for items that won't experience constant hard wear and tear. I highly recommend it for items that will be framed, turned into stockings, hanging pieces, ornaments, and pillows and belts that won't experience hard wear.
We carry almost 100 colors of Planet Earth Wool, and if you haven't tried it before I'd recommend giving it a shot on your next project, I think you'll enjoy!
