New from Laura Bryant at Prism Yarns are Merino Mia gradient packs in grey, taupe, blues & pinks.
Eight subtle shades ranging from the barest tint to deep strength, our versatile Gradient Packs contain eight 2 oz skeins of Merino Mia for 1520 yards of fine merino wool. A single pack will make most any shawl or wrap, and many smaller sweaters, while two packs will make almost anything your heart desires. Add a skein or two for contrast and a single pack will go a long way.
This month's Frabjous "Mad to Party" pack is in as well.
