Recent glimpses of spring have added pep to my step, but so has our new palette of Mulberry Merino! Glowing and full of life, these new colors transport me to spring and the jacket-free months ahead.

Saturated yet subtle, complex yet effortless, this new palette is perfectly suited for Mulberry Merino’s magical blend of extra fine merino and mulberry silk. The dye dances differently with each fiber, while the twisted plies add light and movement.

Our Top-Down Turtleneck Cardigan is just right for celebrating these new colors and for replacing that winter coat. Worked top-down, its knit-in saddle shoulder construction will delight you as much as the yarn, whichever color your choose! -Laura
