Thick and thin (or “slub”) yarn was once considered a mistake, an irregular mess headed for the discard pile. But I am grateful to whoever it was who first noticed the beautiful, organic quality of slub yarn, for without that discovery, Purl Soho would not have Merino Script, our very own thick and thin yarn!

Merino Script is not only wonderfully capricious, it is also much softer than any slub yarn I have ever felt. To take advantage of Merino Script’s coziness and to show off its rustic beauty, we used it to knit up my simple Classic Cuffed Hat. Originally in Worsted Twist, this Merino Script version is the same pattern with a whole new look, one that celebrates happy mistakes!
