The Yarn

In order to make the perfect sweater, I wanted a light-medium weight yarn, but something that was soft! In order to get the best of both worlds, I used WeCrochet Preciosa Tonal. Preciosa Tonal is a 100% Merino Yarn, so it’s perfect for a cold Canadian winter. You can hand wash this yarn cold, and then lay flat to dry, so it’s a serious sweater yarn!

You can find Preciosa Tonal in 100g skeins for $12.99 here >> WeCrochet Preciosa Tonal

The WeCrochet Website describes Preciosa Tonal:

Ridiculously squishy and soft, Preciosa has returned in a gorgeous new color palette! This incredibly luxurious single-ply Merino yarn is now available in a range of soft tonal pastel colors, ready to create the softest, coziest sweaters, cowls, hats and blankets you’ve ever felt. Preciosa is a single ply yarn that has subtle differences in thickness that gives a handspun look to your finished projects. The worsted weight is perfect for quick projects or extra-warm garments.
