An unbelievably soft and luxurious blend of Fine Merino and Italian Cashmere, Merino Cloud is unlike any other yarn!
This Fingering Weight yarn contains an exceptionally high quality cashmere which makes it super soft and as light as a cloud, but with tons of loft and body, and exquisite drape and stitch definition.
And since Artyarns are masters of colours and dyeing, and this yarn takes pigment so well, expect to be wowed! We think this yarn is perfect for socks, hats, shawls, light garments and even baby stuff!
There's an online Spring 2020 KAL using 2 skeins of Merino Cloud starting 30th March! If you're interested in joining, and receiving the free pattern, click here.

[PS - Merino Cloud has a great deal of loft. It is soft enough to be worked as a fingering weight on 3.75mm needles (yielding 5.5 sts per inch) or as a heavy fingering on 4mm needles (yielding 5 sts per inch), or as a dk weight on 4.5mm needles (yielding 4.5 sts per inch).
Because of the loft in the yarn in fills in nicely and does not result in too-holey fabric. Because of the softness in the yarn, it can actually be knitted even on 2mm (size 0) needles, and would still not be too stiff!]
