Queen: This superwash merino is destined to become your go-to yarn for Aran-weight projects. Queen knits up beautifully at 4.5 stitches per inch, and its four plies take dye brilliantly which gives your finished projects a wonderful depth of color and fantastic stitch definition. Queen is a versatile and easy-to-care-for yarn, making it a great choice for quick accessories and baby items from blankets to booties.

The Queen base is available as an Evolution, as a Self-Striping and as Semi-Solid shades designed to coordinate with each colorway.
