Yarnbox - June 2014 - ArtYarns

The Yarn

This month’s yarn has my head swimming. I’m trying to think of how I’d like to use it. While I ponder, here are the details from ArtYarn’s website:

ArtYarns’ Supermerino 

  • Composition: 100% Wool
  • Gauge: 4.5 – 5.5 sts = 1″
  • Recommended Needle: US 5-7
  • Yardage: 208 yards/190 meters
  • Weight: 100g

A machine washable 100% Merino yarn. Durable, and ideal for all types of garments, blankets, and baby items. Worsted Weight. (MRSP approx. $20.)

I also found this great blurb on the yarn:

This 100% merino wool yarn is soft and luscious with a textured twist. Sometimes, I get so carried away by Artyarns more exotic yarns, that I forget how wonderful their supermerino is – light, soft silky – it’s wonderful to knit with, the stitch definition is great, and the colors are of course, fabulous. The merino wool yarn is great for anything from exotic accessories to baby blankets. (Source: Fabulous Yarn)

About Yarnbox

Yarnbox was built out of a passion for discovering wonderful new fibers and yarns and sharing that joy with others. There are simply too many great yarns for even the largest of stores to carry. The sad truth is that many high quality yarns are simply unknown to many knitters. Yarnbox allows you to experience fibers you may never have discovered while allowing small brands exposure on an international level.
