Superwash Merino Wool is my absolute favorite yarn to knit with and to dye, I love it! Lublu is Russian and the translation means "I love". My husband is from Russia and that is where we met, fell in love and got engaged. Lublu has many meanings behind it for me and it is my first line in my hand dyeing adventures, I thought the title was fitting.
It is soft, squishy and supple, and has a great twist. I love yarn with a nice twist. I just love it and it washes beautifully by hand or machine. I prefer to wash by hand because I want my knitted garments to last a long time. I spend a lot of time knitting them and want them to look just as beautiful years later.
I've also got a Lublu Sock which is 80% Superwash Merino Wool and 20% Nylon. The same great yarn with nylon, that gives it extra strength and durability, especially for socks.

Test Knitters Thoughts:
This yarn was fun to knit with, not splitty and has nice elasticity. The finished sock has a nice, cushy feel to it. Speaking of colorway kaleidoscope: I really enjoyed watching how the colors worked together and I really like the way the yarn itself knits up. Thank you Robin!
