Some yarns have skein appeal, while others don't reveal their true potential until you start knitting with them. The third category—yarns with skein appeal that translates into actual knitting appeal—is decidedly smaller. Mermaid is one such yarn, holding your attention from skein to swatch. Made from a base of Pima cotton (42%), Mermaid also includes superwash Merino (35%) as well as a dusting of silk (12%) and SeaCell (11%). SeaCell is actually a blend of 95% Tencel and 5% seaweed extracts.Full review
Hey folks! Another week, another interesting fiber blend - and this one isn't $60 per skein. Has anybody tried Mermaid yet? Your thoughts?
