New Yarn!

from Hikoo Yarns
• 55% Merino Superwash - 
  28% Acrylic - 17% Nylon
• 117 yards per 50 gram hank
• 3.5-4 mm (approx. US 4-6) needles
• Approx. 5 sts per inch

Simplicity is an excellent choice for afghans, children's wear, and anything else that gets daily use. This machine washable wool blend feels like butter in your hands while knitting, but is a true "work horse" of a yarn.  I think I'm in love!  I've often insisted that I 'only' knit with natural fibers, but to my surprise, acrylics & nylons have gotten nicer & nicer over the years.  I have a new niece to knit for, and Simplicity is a perfect yarn for baby goodies.  Maybe it is time to cast on a sweet little blanket...
