Ella Rae Lace Merino is a beautiful fine Merino yarn and a wonderful way to begin many kinds of projects. As the name implies, this fingering weight yarn is perfect for lace projects, but appropriate for so much more. Use it to make socks, hats, scarves, and even consider it for baby items. It has a very soft hand and is machine washable on the delicate cycle. Each 100 gram skein is 100% extra fine Merino, a very generous 460 yards and knits at 29 stitches to 4 inches. Made in Italy.
