Louet Gems Yarn
I received a sample of Louet Gems Worsted yarn for review.
This yarn is worsted spun with a light twist to minimize pilling while maintaining high elasticity. Its then steams to give it a super soft feel to the touch. The main line for Gems comes in Worsted, Sport and Fingering in 29 colors.
Fingering (50 gr skeins) 185 yd/sk -Super Fine #1 (US 2/3), 6.5-7.5 sts/in
Sport (100 gr skeins) 225 yd/sk – Fine #2 (US 3-5), 5-6 sts/in
Light Worsted (100 gr skeins) 175 yd/sk – Light#3 (US 5-7), 4.5-5 sts/in
As 100% Merino Wool this yarn does indeed have a very soft hand. It is machine washable and dryable.
This yarn was a joy to work with. It is super soft and smooth. It performed well for Brioche. I completed the Rosenkranz hat. It has excellent stitch definition and blocked out really well.
