What About Morehouse Merino Fingering Weight?

Hi! I just joined the knitalong, and am in the process of choosing a yarn. It's been quite a pain, actually, locating a yarn that will give the right gauge in colors I like. What do you all think, actually, of Morehouse Merino's fingering weight? It's actually kind of hard to see the yarn on that page, but the gauge seems to be right. Here's a cardigan made with it, and a camisole.

It comes in tons of colors. My choices have more contrast than most - I'm thinking of Olive (MC) + Cranberry (CC).

I've seen the yarn before and it is soft and very lovely. I worry about its durability, though - it seems more delicate than some other yarns that have been considered here.

  • i'm a huge fan of morehouse wool - amazingly i happen to live really close to the farm and the shop and i go in all the time. it's incredibly soft, but since i've only finished one project in it i can't report on the durability really (but so far so good, and drapes beautifully post-blocking).
