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.

Fabulously squishy

I used this yarn to make a crocheted ragdoll amigurumi teddy bear for a new baby. Lovely to work with. So soft and squishy. I will be using it again for more any toys.
