Some yarns are like a rich dessert. You think you should resist, but you don’t want to, and afterwards, you’re glad you didn’t!
Prism’s Merino 12 is that kind of yarn. It’s made of twelve fine plies of extra-fine merino wool. That much merino makes an incredibly soft, plush yarn. Prism’s hand-dyed color is the icing on the cake, transforming Merino 12 into an irresistible decadent treat!
Because Merino 12 feels so good, I wanted to come up with something that would keep it close to your skin. And I wanted to make the most of the fantastic colors in each skein. After a little swatching, I chose an easy slip stitch pattern and knit a simple, elegant cowl.
So treat yourself – or a friend – and give in to Merino 12!
