I had no idea it would feel so much like velvet or that the medium gray color would be even more lovely than I'd imagined.
It's really a treasure! This is my first exposure to cormo wool and I feel delightfully spoiled. Thank you.
I've knit so many types of wool and never have I felt anything more beautiful than your Cormo Woolen-Spun.
- Cassie [Kemp]
This was my first time knitting with Elsa Wool Cormo and it certainly won't be my last.
This beautiful undyed yarn comes from purebred Cormo sheep in Colorado and Montana.
It is a good, honest yarn that's a pleasure to have on the needles.
Its softness makes it ideal for anything worn against the skin.
- From Bonnie Sennott's blog
...I think this is the most beautiful yarn ever. So soft and alive and great, great colour!
I'm loving the Cormo. ...
I was teaching a class on yarn construction, and used your cormo as an example of good quality woolen spun yarn.
The cormo was a total hit!
- N [Nikki Burrows]
Even more beautiful than I'd hoped. Can't wait to wind and swatch!!
- [Thea Coleman]
I do try to resist purchases from the U.S. these days as we get hit by customs duty
but I can't resist an Elsa Wool Cormo order every now and then, it's so worth it.
- Terri [O'Brien]
It's a pleasure to work with!
- Luba [Silikova]
The yarn ... is so soft and beautiful, it's perfect really. It is a pleasure to knit and to wear.
People who say they can't wear wool are surprised by it.
- Tina [Puthenpurackal]
The yarn did work beautifully for me for both warp and weft. And ... it made a very luxurious fabric.
- Lynette [Dowling]
Working with your yarn is such a joy!
- Kirstin [Peterson]
I just love the softness and durability of your yarn.
- Kelly [Pippin]
I tried out your lamb yarn..... I ... was very impressed:
it has that familiar crispness that the usual woolen-spun yarns have but with an added velvety feel.
There's something very exquisite about the softness of this yarn that is both hardy and luxurious.
Indeed, whenever I pulled my fingers away and rubbed them together, it had a wonderful "after feel".....
I'm reminded of rubbing flower petals between my fingers-
there's this curious softness that's left on the fingers, almost a moisturizing effect.
I enjoyed working with these yarns very much.
- Rachael [Park]
Your yarn is still the best I've used!
- Kris Viren
I was extremely impressed with the quality of your woolen-spun worsted yarn.
The project (an enormous full color-work stole) knit up in a jiff.
- Courtney Spainhower
I started the socks and love the feel and cushiness of the yarn!
- Susie [Cook]
I'm so excited to be working with your Cormo wool again. Still my favorite yarn of all time!
- Rachael [Park]
I made a baby blanket from your lace weight for my grandson and it turned out stunningly beautiful.
My favorite blanket to date.
- Mari Liestman.
So lovely to work with.......
- Wendy [Munn]
Knitting with your yarn is always an absolute pleasure.
- Terri [O'Brien]
Your wonderful wool ... makes a most satisfying knit. If I were allowed only one wool, it would be your woolen spun yarn.
The cables and ribbing in my first pullover from your 30% look sculpted. It is really amazing wool.
- Susan [Leach]
Like knitting with butter--
- Reegan [Campbell]
Oh, I LOVE your wool, Elsa!
I'm a huge fan of woolen-spun yarns and yours are one of the best: downy, squishy goodness.
- Bongsoo [Park]
Just so wonderfully soft and gorgeously white! Perfect.
- Denise [Floyd]

Wow, so soft!
- Mary Jo [Anvid]
... It is quite possibly the closest to heaven I've ever experienced. Thank you for making such amazing yarn!!!
- Cassie [Harada]
It's gorgeous, such a delight; a perfect mix of soft and fuzzy, with a slight sheen and crispness to give it a beautiful drape...
- Leslie [Niblett]
It's a very rich and beautiful yarn.
- Tracy [Condeso]
Your yarn is so wonderful that I can't seem to stop thinking about sweaters that I want to knit in it.
Your cormo is the perfect balance of sheep-y natural with an elegant softness.
- Anne [Patterson]
LOVE this soft springy friendly wool!
- Catherine Shumadine
I am in Yarn Heaven!!!! ........ This is the most beautiful wool I have ever seen!!!
- Joanie Witty
Your yarn is the most lovely wool I've ever knit with!
- Susan [Mullins]
Love the wool ! :) Love the super softness, and the great sheepy colors:)
I just can't get enough of your yarn. It's so soft and warm.
It's the most beautiful yarn to work with, my favorite.
It's soft like cotton.....The yarn just feels alive and full of good spirit....
- Sharon [Moffat]
... such a lovely choice of natural colored cormo. ... so soft and springy! ...
I am loving how beautifully the woolen-spun worsted weight knits up into cables.
- Wendy [Johnson]
I am totally in love with your wool. It's the wool I've been looking for.
... I've found it remarkably hard to find a simple and beautiful natural yarn like yours.
- Hope Morrissett
It's incredible! Someone on Rav described it as feeling like velvet and I thought that might be an overstatement...but it's not! Wow...
I forgot to mention how amazing the color is...I realize it's natural so color is not really the right word as that to me implies being died. However, the light gray at least is not quite brownish and not quite grayish...almost a creamy silver...I LOVE it!
- Heidi [Rosin]
I have to say how delighted I am with the yarn - it feels amazing and looks so soft and sophisticated knit up.
And I love the greyish-brownish color too.
I am working on a collection of sweater patterns....
I love the Elsawool so much I am changing one of the other sweaters in the collection so grey-brown will fit....
- Jenise [Reid]
I've almost finished knitting Catherine by Glenna C in your woolen spun worsted weight.
It is beautiful yarn! I spend almost as much time snuggling my skeins, as I do knitting!
- Karen [Henderson]
Beautiful and feels like heaven.
- Diane [Simmons]
.... I am so in love with your yarn.
I am knitting a bunch of cabled headbands for Christmas in your yarn and they look beautiful -
the cables show up so well and the yarn stretches just a little...exactly enough.
- Jan [Brinker]
Your wool is so beautifully springy and bouncy.
- [Deb Curry]
I already received the yarn, and it is so beautiful.
The 5% grey is such a gentle soft color. .... It is so much fun to have the natural color of the sheep!
- Sarah Ammon
The swatch I made is gorgeous - so soft and woolly.
- Laura [Hussey]
It is so gorgeous and soft!
- Pam [Udomprasert]
The woolen lamb yarn is just lovely -- lovely to knit with and to feel, the springy yarn giving such even stitches.
I tried it doubled, too, using size 8 needle that yielded about 4 1/2 stitches to the inch -- so warm and cushiony.
It's really wonderful yarn.
- [Judy Cluett]
I have just cast on a sweater in your [woolen-spun worsted weight] yarn and I'm in love!
It's a true delight to work with and I am enjoying every stitch.
- Jenn [Hill]
I'm in love with your yarn....
.... The 80% dark gray is EXACTLY the color of my couch. Which the manufacturer calls "Peaty."
- Karin Clifton
That lamb's wool is to die for, isn't it?
- Mindy [Kingery]
There's just nothing like your yarn - the perfect balance of crimp and bounce and softness and sturdiness.
- Erin Spiker
I love your wool Elsa! It's such a joy to knit and to wear. Thanks for keeping it affordable for those of us on a fixed income.
It's such a pleasure to knit and wear.
- Annette [Schneider]
The Elsawool Sport 2ply is a woolen spun cormo, so it's soft and round, with the subtlest hint of a heather in the fiber.
It feels so amazing against your skin that I'm wearing the sweater with only a tank underneath in the photos.
Plus, at $22 per 350 yds, it's priced very reasonably for such an incredible farm yarn.
- Thea Colman
OH MY GOODNESS!!
This is perhaps THE loveliest, softest, squishiest, most comforting yarn I have ever worked with
(and I have been knitting for 60+ years).
- Suzanne [W.]
Elsa Wool is simply THE most wonderful wool, so bouncy, so soft, such a joy to knit with,
and the finished pieces are absolutely beautiful to look at and to wear.
- Kathy Joyner
The [woolen-spun worsted weight] is beautiful!
It's so light and squishy!
- Liz [Klute]
I have come across a lot of yarns - but yours really are exceptional.
I knitted a baby blanket in your 30% mid-grey Cormo woolen spun fingering; it is so soft - almost like velvet!
My project notes on Ravelry: Gorgeous yarn - natural, soft, sturdy and almost looks like a cross between wool and chenille.
I love its softness and its lack of halo - for me - the perfect yarn!
- Sara [Curran]
It is truly gorgeous yarn. Even though I'd read people comment on how soft and springy it is, I just couldn't see how....and it IS!
- Jan Brinker
[Woolen-spun sport weight yarn:] Thank you so much for producing and offering such plump, soft and cozy natural wool yarn for knitting.
- Jennifer [Obst]
It feels a little like cotton but really shows the stitch definition which I like.
- [Olivia Shaw]
[Woolen-spun fingering and woolen-spun worsted/Aran:] Oh, my goodness does it feel delightful!
- Carol [Quilici]
The yarn [woolen-spun sport] is beautiful and a joy to knit!
