We’re really pleased to be stocking a selection of Catherine Earnshaw Yarns’ Softest Italian Merino wool. The yarn come in a range of beautiful, wearable colours, and at a price tag of £4.99 per 50g it provides exceptional value for money.
If that’s not enough to convince you, here are 5 more reasons that might persuade you to try out this new merino:
1. It’s comparable to cashmere
The supple texture of the wool creates a soft drape similar to a much more expensive cashmere.
2. It’s got excellent yardage
A 50g ball provides 140 metres, thanks to the quality of the fine merino.
3. It knits to any DK pattern

4. It provides warmth without bulk
The merino makes a lovely jumper that’s just right for layering under a jacket. The very fine yarn is also perfect for scarves, hats and gloves.
5. The company is based in the UK
We like to support British businesses. Although the wool itself is made in Italy, Catherine Earnshaw Yarns is a family-run operation started by a UK-based mother-daughter team.
