Introducing Purl Soho's Super Soft Merino!

We are so grateful to end this harrowing week with the happiest announcement we've had in a long time. Today Purl Soho launches our very own collection of yarn, starting with our super scrumptious Super Soft Merino!

A thick cloud of 100% Peruvian merino, Super Soft Merino is the dreamiest, cuddliest, toastiest yarn you can imagine. This loosely spun single ply knits up at a cozy 3 stitches to the inch, perfect for winter chills and quick gifts!

As readers of the Purl Bee know, our love for yarn is followed closely by our love for color! Creating a signature palette for our Super Soft Merino was unbelievably fun, like picking a bouquet of garden-fresh flowers. Our beautiful rainbow includes a dozen of our very favorite colors: Super Pink, Red Zinnia, Clementine Orange, Yellow Yellow, Extra Green, Desert Sky, Peacock Blue, Timeless Navy, Oyster Gray, Toasted Charcoal, Soft Black and Heirloom White.

Each skein is an ample 87 yards long. Want to start with a scarf? Just two skeins knit up into a beautifully classic scarf, or try three skeins for a luxuriously generous neck wrapper!

We have lots of Purl Bee patterns in the works, but we also can't wait to see what you, our ingenious readers, create with Super Soft Merino. Big, cozy sweaters, sweeping wraps, dramatic cowls, cushiony baby blankets, sophisticated lap throws, and fabulous hats; monotone, stripes, ombre, fair isle, colorblocking, the possibilities are endless!

To celebrate this exciting venture and to get you super inspired, we're having a...

Would be easier to ask me what I'm NOT inspired to do with it!
But I want something that I can hug all the time.

November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEspino
Wow, it looks beautiful! I am a new knitter and have been so inspired by your web site. I have many projects that i want to try but the snowflake scarf is calling my name. I would use the super soft merino wool and make this scarf for myself. Merry Christmas to ME!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMaggie Leiper
I would knit the Taiga Cowhichan as seen here:

I'd have to make a wrap or cowl with it!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLiz
Wow! 10 skeins could make a beautiful, cozy wrap! With three, I think a chunky pair of mittens and a hat to match. Thanks for the chance.

November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCorlene
A cape with a hood, oyster grey. This would let me blend in with the wet and windy winter weather in Malmoe, Sweden, while still keeping me warm and happy.
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLina
OH MY, this is beautiful!!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHope
I would love to knit some hats for my daughter's for Christmas...looks soft and warm!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPam
My third daughter wants me to crochet a blanket just like her sister's blankets, but she wants one without so many "holes" so she can snuggle up this winter. She is just as bright and cheerful as the wool colors you show. How beautiful!!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCindy
My first cowl, for sure!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

I have a little baby boy due in early February. I would knit him a cozy, colorful blanket!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersally
This yarn looks gorgeous! I would definitely make my son a cosy hat and mittens and seeing as I have a slight obsession with scarves I would definitely have to add another one to the collection!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTeresa
I'd knit a cozy scarf (in clementine orange!) for my friend who just moved from California to Boston... Brrr!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca G
Here in Wisconsin, you can never make enough throws, or scarves, or cowls-- yet for this fabulous yarn...I think I might try to make this:
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCamille
I would love to knit a cozy rainbow baby blanket for my new little one!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHsin
I want to make that snowflake scarf. It's beautiful, I love the design!!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBiz Wallingsford
I would love to make a soft blanket or throw, but I'm sure my kids would snag it. I may have to make a few.
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi English
I would make a gorgeous cowl....perhaps rework the herringbone cowl to use the chunky yarn! (just finished an aran one and I love it!)
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLisa
Oh my goodness, what possibilities! I would make either a cowl to brighten up a winter outfit or a cardigan for my niece! <3
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMorgan Q
I love the snowflake scarf. I would knit any scarf !!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDana
I think that some of those colours would knit into a beautiful Baby Bobbie Bear for my new niece.
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLyn
The brightness of the colours makes me want to knit outer coats for my little cousins and tons of warm mittens and coordinated hats :)
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDaniela
I'd looove to make either a cowl or a warm hat with those yarns, they look like an absolute dream!
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMaddy
I would knit an Infinity scarf with random cables running through it!

I would make a lovely soft, squishy cowl (like the GAP-tastic one on ravelry).
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSusan V.
I would make a cuddly scarf for our cold winters in Toronto. It looks absolutely delicious and lovely.
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterrachael
I would love to win this beautiful yarn
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSheila
that looks so drool worthy in the snuggliest of ways - might use it to knit a massive herringbone poncho tent that i can be all wrapped up in while having some tea and biscuits with ingrid michaelson playing in the background (:
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterYue Chin
Congratulations on your new line of yarn! the colors are beautiful. I would make an afghan highlighting the beautiful colors and a matching pillow.
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMary Coultas
Extra green or either of the blues would extinguish the winter blues in a gorgeous mock-cable scarf, cowl or striped mittens! Such softness would not stay just around my neck but up over my nose in the cold too...ahhhhh.
November 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJennie
I can see this scrumptious yarn being used to create a free form asymmetrical poncho/cape/wrap. On the streets of NYC I was continually catching sight of some fabulous forms of warming, cosy, wrapping up for winter. To sit by the fire, with my project slowly growing on my lap, keeping me warm as I prepare to wrap up for the winter....... Natural fibers, gorgeous colours, silky softness, hibernating, knitting.....
