Thicker side of Rico Aran

Delightfully squishy and a true consistent aran weight throughout unlike the Rico Melange (for example even in it's thickest sections feels more of a DK at best a light worsted).

Consistent colour that lends itself to all sorts of patterns and ideas- I see a few more Strange Brews in my future!

Rico Aran Soft Merino Yarn

I have used this yarn to knit Aran style hats in different colours for some family members. It is very easy to work with and the range of colours available is wonderful. The last two I did were black. Very pleased with result.
Unfortunately know how to get download photo from my phone to laptop.

Very soft

Beautiful yarn. I used 6 skeins and didn't come across one knot - YES! I made the Sophie's Shawl by PetiteKnit and a pair of Bread and Buttoned mittens for my friend. She has a very sensitive skin and cannot stand woollen scarves but she was fine with this one and loved it.

Beautiful yarn

I bought this to make a baby cardigan and it's just so beautiful. Amazing quality, so soft and cosy. I'm complimented on it any time my little girl wears her cardigan! My go-to now for baby knits.

Merino Aran

Beautiful colour, very soft wool. I bought it to make a baby blanket but I will definitely purchase more and different colours for other projects. This wool is amazing. The price for such quality is great too. Thank you for your help in the shop while purchasing the wool. Super high level customer service! Thank you
