Rummage! Best sale picks!
With a sale this good, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by yarn lust, so Merion has had a rummage for irresistible bargains especially for you!
The only thing we knitters love more than yarn, is yarn in a sale! To help you negotiate our delightful array of bargains, I’ve picked out some fantastic offers to tempt you.
One of the first things I found was a classic – Rowan Pure Wool Worsted with 34% off! This fabulous worsted weight yarn knits on a 4.5mm needle – with a twist that will give great stitch definition, in a huge range of stunning shades. Each 100g ball contains 200m /214 yards – so it’s an absolute bargain. Snap this one up! This beautiful yarn is a match for patterns that call for aran or worsted weight yarn – dreamy cardies, warm sweaters, delicious hats and scarves – it’s heaven!
Rowan Pure Wool Worsted in Aqua (156), Pearl (162) and Light Denim (154)
If you’re a lace knitter, take a minute to sit down and digest what I’m about to tell you: Mirasol Hatchito Hand Painted Superwash Merino Wool Blend is 55% off! Over 15 shades of hand painted lace weight yarn, less than half price. This is the moment when you dream about all those fabulous shawls you’re going to knit for Christmas presents, birthday presents and presents for yourself – not including hanks of yarn just to look at!
I’ve included a pattern image here, for Louisa Harding Noema, because sometimes it’s not easy to see how a yarn will look knitted up, and that’s especially true with variegated or patterned yarns. Noema is tricky to visualise in a ball, but just look at how it works up!
Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s a cotton and acrylic blend, and there are over 15 colourways to choose from at 25% off. Louisa Harding yarns are always absolutely dreamy to knit, and I will certainly buying a few balls of Menthe (19) – so leave some there for me!
On the subject of yarn that can be difficult to visualise, Debbie Bliss Delphi is a tape yarn, that is a stunning summer choice, with gentle ombré magic. Just look at how it knits.
Delphi is 25% off in the sale. 100% cotton and knits on 8mm needles – speedy knitting too!
Now – a special nod to all the sock knitters – let me introduce you to a rather special product: Lang Yarns Jawoll Reinforcement. It doesn’t sound glamorous but it’s magic! Lang Yarns are famous for their yarn technology, and cleverly, they have produced a yarn that you knit along through the toes and heels of your socks together with your sock yarn of choice (or sew it through afterwards) and this gives your socks some extra strength. Genius! It comes in over 20 shades, and is ludicrously affordable!
Happy sale shopping!
