A white backdrop of snowy streets is the perfect place to throw in a splash of color. And with over a dozen new colors in its palette, Super Soft Merino has us excited for the snow days ahead!

Snow Day Hat in New Colors | Purl Soho

For our quick and fun Snow Day Hat, we used two strands of Super Soft Merino held together to create an eye-catching marled fabric. From bright and cheery Yellow Yellow to subtle Lavender Opal, a dash of color in a big, simple hat really makes a statement.

Super Soft Merino was our very first Purl Soho yarn, and we love it as much today as we did four years ago. It is our go-to for winter knitting, and I can’t imagine a better companion in this year’s snowy weather than our Snow Day Hat! -Jake
