From Katia's luxury Concept line, Cotton-Merino is a beautiful and sophisticated yarn perfect for three-season garments. I love how the colors peek out from the soft cotton halo giving your fabric a fabulous dimensional look. Cotton-Merino is a "blown" yarn, constructed of a cotton mesh tube into which extrafine merino fibers are blown, making the yarn light and lofty and very durable. In the darker jewel-tones, the cotton mesh is black, and white for the pastels, setting off each colorway perfectly
Wonderful to work with, Cotton-Merino makes a striking fabric. It has has great stitch definition to showcase a variety of pattern Classified as a worsted weight, it can easily be knit at a chunky gauge. The fiber blend and color palette make this is an ideal choice for transitional garments and accessories.
