Playful : A soft, bouncy yarn with fantastic stitch definition and a matte look. Playful takes dye really nicely, making for a beautiful yarn that is good for many different projects. Of course, socks are a great choice, because Playful is smooth with a firm twist, so your socks will last for a long time. The superwash merino makes this yarn wonderful for baby and children’s clothing, sweaters, and gloves or hats. Playful has fantastic stitch definition, so textured stitches and cables look lovely; this yarn is great for showing off your skills.


The Playful base is available as a Self-Striping and in Semi-Solid shades designed to coordinate with each colorway.
