Blairwood Sweater -CoCo Crochet Lee - Lion Brand Yarn

I used some absolutely stunning Lion Brand Touch of Merino for the Blairwood Sweater, and it was a dream to work with (even in a dark yarn colour!). The Yarn is so smooth, and the stitch definition is unreal.

Merino is the crème de la crème of wool, prized for its springy stitches, cashmere-like feel and excellent drape. Lion Brand® has created Touch of Merino as the second yarn in our Touch of Luxe Yarn Collection.
