Everyone falls in love with Cotton-Merino at first touch! This wonderful blend of cotton and merino is warm yet lightweight, and in gorgeous vintage colours.
To squish this ball of yarn is to immediately fall in love. Cotton Merino is made from a 70% cotton, 30% wool blend in a range of delicious vintage colours.
What makes this scrumptious yarn both interesting and so beautifully soft is its unusual cotton chainette construction - extra fine dyed merino fibres are wrapped within and around an undyed cotton tube. The effect this creates when worked into a fabric is of delicious softness and squishiness with beautifully uneven, two-tone shading of colour.
Fantastic for jumpers, cardigans, shawls, cowls, blankets and more, that are warm but still lightweight. We've used it for colourwork/fairisle jumpers and hats too and it's wonderful!
