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...

Super Soft Merino Giveaway!

LOVE the pink! I'd like to make some mittens in pink and grey... maybe some zig zags or chevrons!

This yarn looks amazing! I would love to use it to make some squishy and soft tummy-time blankets for all of my friends who are due to have babies in early 2013!

I have been dreaming of a chunky two color chevron cowl and I think this yarn looks amazing!

This yarn definitely wants to be made into big chunky wrist warmers and a loose knit cardigan with hand painted buttons!

I've been wanting to make a whole family of mittens, and this yarn would be perfect!
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda A.
I think it would be great to knock out a bunch of hats for people in Coney Island or the rockaways. I'm destashing that way righ now.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterShannon
It's already freezing here in Buffalo, just like it probably is in NY and I desperately need a hat (and maybe matching mittens and a scarf?)!
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNell
I love all these colors! I think I would make a really cozy scarf out of the clementine orange!

My sister has been wanting a cowl for years now, and I've decided to make her one for christmas this year! The desert sky or oyster grey are just her colors.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBarbie

This yarn looks scrumptious! Love the colors. I would love to use this yarn
To make a beautiful,colorful, warm blanket for my nephew on the way!
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKate MacCurdy
Colors look gorgeous and yarn delicious! I'd whip up a few Project Linus blankets (yes, you can use non-machine washable wool and then felt it- it will be the warmest blankie baby has!). This yarn also looks perfect for a simple stockinette skirt worn with leggings and boots. If any yarn is left, it would be time to start the gift scarves- cartridge rib, mistake rib, etc, etc..oh the endless possibilities!
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPamD
The list is endless! A cowel off of Purlbee's website for starters, a winter hat for my little boy and a ton of pom poms with any remnants
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterH Butcher
These are gorgeous! I'd like to crochet a cowl for myself and some for Christmas gifts for special friends.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTracy
I am swooning over the peacock blue...sigh. I think that I would make a big snuggly sweater or wrap with it for the cold winter months ahead.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterApril
I would make a wonderfully soft and warm sweater for my husband. He's been sneaking peeks at some of the new yarn coming into the house and holding out hope that some of it is intended for something new for him. He's such a sweet man and would really appreciate and take good care of a new, warm sweater.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCarol Knowles
so pretty! I would make a big soft chevron blanket!
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHannah

I will 100% be making the herringbone cowl out of this amazing yarn ... in Super Pink, of course.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLeanne
Glad you are up and running. What better way to cheer people up then to post these lovely colors and get us all thinking about soft and warm and cheerful projects. I would knit an oversized sweater with big pockets for cold hands. Or a capelet to wrap around shoulders like a hug. Nothing shy, with these colors to inspire.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLiz
With a baby on the way I have been earmarking project, after project, after project to get to. This might just jumpstart my bunting project for real. Thanks for the opportunity.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKristen T
I would make hats and cowls, things that could softly caress your face.

Beautiful colors! Congrats!
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Stevens
I just want to bury my face in that pile of rainbows. I definitely see this yarn making great scarves and cowls.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterValerie
Wow i love the colors - specially the pink to have it. I am looking for a bright color or two to knit an extra cozy winter sweater - icelandic style - for the cold winters up here in Iceland. I have just finished knitting sweaters for my kids and my husband - so now it is my turn to get something :D
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSilja
Oooh, I LOVE the colors! I would make a beauftiful cowl for my sister - that pink is just right for her!

I would make a generously-sized cabled hat, maybe with a combination cable (seed stich on one side), and definitely with a pom-pom on top.
November 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth
I too , love to have my neck wrapped in cozy cowls all winter long. Here in Maine cowls are a must !
