I love the thrill of the chase, the hunt for an exotic skein only available in one little corner of the world.
But I also love discovering beautiful surprises hiding right under my nose. That's how this week's yarn came to my attention.
Frequently we see Merino blended with cashmere and nylon and twisted nice and tight for socks. But in Plymouth Yarn's Cashmere Passion, we have 80% Merino and 20% cashmere blended into a relaxed, smooth, gently spun yarn at a weight that begs for sweaters. The label says worsted, but my eyes suggest otherwise. Let's swatch and find out.
