Read all about it…Worsted Merino Superwash

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Plymouth Yarn’s Worsted Merino Superwash yarn is the perfect choice for projects for the entire family.  It feels amazingly soft against the skin, washable, versatile and shows wonderful stitch definition.  It really is perfect for all knitting and crocheting projects.

We are excited that this yarn is featured in two magazines this month and wanted to share the stories with you.

Knitscene’s first-ever Winter 2011 issue delights with a collection of 22 must-have knits.  You can see the Wragby Cardigan color 29 by Carol Feller on newsstands October 25th.

Knit up 20 blocks and assemble them into a stunning afghan. You
knit stripes with a small dip stitch accent to merge the colors and add
flexibility. Knit until square, then assemble. Magically, the blocks will appear
to be curved.
