marvel at merino

Merino wool is an amazing fibre and incredibly sought after for its softness. This 100% Merino wool by Marriner Yarns takes full advantage of the incredible properties of the natural fibre – evolved to keep sheep comfortable at temperatures ranging from 5 degrees to 95 degrees, it’s safe to say that it has truly perfected temperature regulation and sweat wicking. Merino wool is three or four times finer than human hair and very flexible, making it thinner and softer than most types of regular wool. Keen to get hooking?

I didn’t start with the easiest option as beginners do, but maybe that was my way to properly jump into it. After picking up the hook to make baby items for my son, I was soon hooked on crochet and then realised that I could make my own patterns too. Inspiration is everywhere I go, especially in the natural forms that are around me as I go about my daily life. I love working with beautifully…
