The New Girl Is Back: Loopy Mango Merino Worsted
We're not surprised, but Loopy Mango's Merino Worsted has been a huge hit at Wool & Grace. This worsted-weight yarn is soft, comes in dynamite colors, is totally versatile and a delight to knit with. Whether you decide to go Loopy with your pattern choice or go rogue, this yarn can do just about anything.
Loopy Mango's Rhinebeck Cardigan (pictured below) continues to be a hit among the Wool & Grace team and our knitters. This project knits up quickly using just 6 to 7 balls of Merino Worsted and knits up quickly on a US17 needle. Sound questionable? We thought so, too - but it really works and creates a soft, light and wearable sweater.
Each skein of Merino Worsted is 109 yards and $12. You can learn more and buy online by clicking here!
