As generous a yarn as we could dream up, Purl Soho's Gentle Giant is for anyone with a soft spot for cozy and an eye for beauty! In over two dozen colors, its gorgeous palette ranges from gentle Silver Mauve to glowing Super Pink... So many beauties to choose from! Made in Peru, Gentle Giant is certified to be free of substances that may be harmful to human health. The fiber is from the merino sheep breed, which is wool at its best: soft but strong, light but warm, and with enough elasticity that your knits will hold their shape. The loose and lofty spin of this single ply makes full use of merino's softness and also traps air to insulate you from the cold. Gentle Giant knits up at a great, big 1.5 stitches to the inch and is the perfect go-to yarn for quick-but-gorgeous knits: warm winter blankets, sumptuous hats and scarves, and high-drama cowls!
