We chose this Jacob yarn for our second Beyond Merino box because we really wanted to showcase the wide variety of wools that are out there. This 3-ply worsted spun yarn is fairly lustrous, but not as bouncy as a merino (or Corriedale).
While this one may not be comfortable for neckwear or next-to-skin garments (depending on your sensitivity levels) it’s still suitable for a wide variety of projects, such as mittens, slippers, or pillows!
Note: "Tulip" was this month's warm colour choice, "Crocus" was the cool colour option. "Intense Tulip" is a test skein that was created during our development process and is a deeper colour, with more vibrant reds and oranges in it.
