Martha Stewart Crafts Merino Yarn is a 100% Merino, worsted wt yarn. Matte in finish, this yarn has a soft to moderate halo and is plied on the looser side of moderate, giving it a little stretch. A moderately soft yarn with very good stitch definition, this yarn is ideal for quick and warm accessories such as mittens, gloves, hats, cowls, and scarves.
I think this yarn is a good addition to the Martha Stewart Crafts line. I enjoyed working with it and felt that it performed as well as several worsted weight merinos available in yarn shops. Martha Stewart Crafts Merino Yarn is already in stores. Pop on over to Jo-Ann's and take a peek for yourself. You've still got time to knit up those mitts, hats, or slippers for the upcoming holiday season!!
