Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK

Hand knitting is tactile.

Different yarns from different fibres are used for different projects.

And I love merino for cozy warm jumpers. Merino is a beautifully fine premium yarn from sheep that certainly does produce a hug when worn. And, to knit with, it flows through your fingers as stitches are created in the most sublime way. It is, as the name suggests, Sublime.

That's why Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK is used in lots of the patterns in Knit and Nibble and there are an abundance of shades, and it's machine washable too!

A most exquisite natural yarn collection in beautiful colours that inspire great designs.

Sublime is Sirdar’s luxury range and comes in many different yarn types. Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK and Worsted yarns are both made from pure extra fine Merino wool. DK or Double Knitting is a traditional UK weight and Worsted is a traditional USA weight (thicker than DK, but thinner than Aran). Merino is a special breed of sheep that grow fine wool. With Sublime, an extra fine fibre diameter of 18.6 microns is used, resulting in the softest yarn that is a pleasure to knit with. Machine washable at 30°C.

In Knit and Nibble, I've worked hard on clothing sizes, for sweaters that are more fitted and contemporary. Choose the pattern you like and simply use the Sublime collection of colours to knit your own personality.

And ... when practising #knititation, how lovely it is to have something so tactile to feel as the sensations of knitting run through the body.
