Softness Reigns Supreme
Transitioning into spring calls for a little more lightness and a lot more softness, and we’re serious about those dreamy, next-to-skin fibers! Spring yarns bring drape, rich color, breathability and stitch definition in such a way as to push those dreary
➊ Andorra, a new fingering-weight yarn from Kelbourne Woolens, is the cream of the crop in a breed-specific yarn: highland wool, merino wool and mohair. It’s a lofty, soft harmony that is utterly classic and distinctly beautiful.
➋ Berroco’s Bento, an ultra-light worsted weight, blends merino and silk for a softness worthy of royal blood. Lace shines under the smooth twist, but it’s the subtle sheen and entrancing loftiness that make us die-hard fans.
➌ Bella Cash from Universal Yarn combines nylon and merino with just enough cashmere to keep you coming back for more. Delicate yet strong, every level of knitter will delight in the feel, the stitch definition and the array of colors.
➍ Superwash merino has never felt as good as it does with Louet North America’s Gems in worsted. The tight, worsted-spun twist makes for incredible stitch definition and structure but doesn’t compromise its softness. This is stuff sweater dreams are made of.
