Cascade Merino Dream

Merino Dream® is a super soft single-ply merino yarn with a hand painted effect over an ecru base. Makes beautiful shawls, wraps, light-weight accessories. This wonderful single-ply yarn is available in a variety of colorways.  Whether you are knitting a shawl, cowl, or a hat, Merino Dream will make a soft, warm garment.  The multi-colored feature of the yarn makes a wonderful color display on your knitted/crocheted project.

Merino Wool is the softest of the sheep wools.  Merino sheep fleece is not barbed like other sheep breeds.  Merino wool has become extremely popular with artists that like to create garments out of wool.  An added bonus is that individuals that are sensitive to wool can often tolerate Merino wool.

Each skein have enough yardage (437 yds) to make a whole shawl.  Make a hat, mitts, and a cowl to match and have some left over for a shawlette!  The color display this yarn gives is magical and reminiscent of poppies or African violets.  One of the prettiest patterns for this yarn is the simple Hitchhiker shawl available on Ravelery.  <>
