Isager – Merilin
If you like 100% natural yarn with unconventional blends, Isager’s Merilin could be your next yarn!
Among the first to combine wool and linen, Isager has developped a particularly pleasant yarn to work with and to wear. Its structure gives it a beautiful stitch definition. This way, you will obtain wonderful results with stockinette as well as with more textured stitches. Plus, the addition of linen to the blend not only brings it more softness, but it also lends more drape to the fabric you will create.
This yarn has been produced in Peru, where Isager works with local actors who guarantee both the farming conditions of the sheeps and the manufacturing process of the yarn, from the beginning to the end. The wool indeed comes from mulesing-free farms, and is treated, dyed and spun following an eco-friendly process.
As always, you will find the colour palette developped specifically by Isager and used with all their yarn. It is made of timeless shades, here slightly heathered. Indeed, the linen does not take the dye like the wool, so that it stands out a little.
What you need to know about this yarn:
- Weight: Fingering
- Composition: 80% wool, 20% linen
- 210 meters / 50 grams per ball
- Available in 9 shades
- Needles: 3 to 3.5 mm depending on the effect you want to achieve
- Gauge: 28 stitches = 10 cm
With its touch of linen, Isager’s Merilin is very pleasant to knit and to wear, softer than a pure wool yarn. Its slightly heathered colours and finesse actually enhance this feeling of softness. So that it will be an excellent choice to create baby and child clothes. For example, it will make cute (Tout) Petit Large and Petit Large. And as there is no reason that you cannot enjoy it too, why not go on with this theme and knit a Grand Large for yourself too? After all, is there something cuter than sharing knitting in family?
