Because we are making a coat, we are looking for a crisp fabric with a firm hand. The Gold Merino VIII using a size 8 (5 mm) needle is a beautiful fabric that is crisp with a firm hand.  The stitch definition is also beautiful. The yarn is also smooth with a luxurious feel. On both swatches, the stitch definition is great.  On the size 7 (4.5 mm) needle the fabric is crisp and the hand is firm.  On the size 8 (5 mm) needle the fabric made with the Merino VI has more stretch. 

Join the Party

Come together, develop your skills, and let’s celebrate!
