Claudia Handpaints

This 100% merino wool yarn, like Koigu, is popular for shawls, stoles and scarves. And for those of you who enjoy knitting at a fingering gauge (7 sts/inch) it makes a great sweater too.

The hat (1 sk) and kimono style jacket shown below (14-16 sks) illustrate how it knits up in mitered squares.

It also looks great in a slip stitch pattern and using 2 different colors.

180 yds. $14.50/ball

For another fingering (or a smidgen lighter) 100% merino hand-dyed yarn, check out Ella Rae Lace Merino.
