There’s nothing as comforting as soft, decadent yarn in the early days of winter. Luxurious to the touch and exuding lightweight warmth, these elegant yarns repel the harsh cold with ease, promising an early end to those midwinter blues.
➊ Premier Yarns Everyday line is back with a brand-new bulky that everyone will enjoy. Ultra-soft and fabulous to touch, it has a loft that makes textures pop! You’ll find this is the perfect chunky-weight yarn for all your afghans, cuddle sacks, baby sweaters and toys.
➋ Superwash merino never looked as good as it does in Lorna’s Laces Cloudgate. Paired with a hint of nylon for durability, it’s a cuddle-worthy bulky yarn that pairs perfectly with texture of any kind. Multiple plies and a firm twist add bounce without sacrificing its glorious softness.
➌ A lush blend of merino and alpaca, Rowan’s Alpaca Soft DK is a gorgeous transitional yarn. A smooth twist ensures optimal structure in any stitch, as well as a happy bounce that makes it a joy to knit with. The next-to-skin softness will leave you wanting more from the get-go.
➍ Reminiscent of pencil roving, Plymouth Yarn’s Tuscan Aire is almost exactly like knitting with … air. The loft and elasticity of this cloudlike merino blend is off the charts. Stitch patterns take on a hazy effect with the subtle halo, resulting in a texture that both warms and enchants.
