Walk Collection – Cottage Merino
Cottage Merino is a beautiful 100% merino single ply yarn. If you have an eye for lavish bases and modern colourways Cottage Merino is for you. Single ply yarns have unique properties. Because they have very little twist, they behave similarly to silk making for a soft, lustrous and wonderfully drapey fabric. Perfect for knitting or crocheting delicate garments and accessories like lacy shawls.
Single ply yarns are also renowned for catching dyes and the Cottage Merino is a fantastic showcase of the stunning work of artisan dyer Walk Collection. Their unique palette has something for everyone, from semi-solids and lightly variegated to bright speckles and extravagant pops of colour. They are all highly wearable and easy to combine together.
