Soft and Smooth

By: on 17 April 2020
This yarn feels so soft to touch when you pick up the ball you just have the urge to squeeze it! It is no surprise that the knitted piece is equally luxurious. This is the yarn to choose for next to sensitive skin. The strands are very smooth and rounded and just slides off your needles like a dream. I’m making a blanket from it with big lacy holes and the stitch definition and drape are perfect for it. The shop sample garter blanket is very squishy and the colour range is fab. However, it is very versatile beyond baby and kids knits. We have had many return customers for beanies and scarves too. They report that gift recipients who usually complain about the general scratchiness of wool items cannot find fault in this smooth superfine merino.
