I Tried Something New

Published February 5, 2016 by wackybrittany

I tried crocheting with merino wool for the first time. Oh my gosh, I love it. Merino wool is so soft. It’s stretchier than normal yarn. The colors are so pretty. I just love it. I’m going to have a hard time going back to the cheaper stuff.

The size of these turned out to be for a larger sized hand. My hands are larger than average woman’s size and they fit me.

I love the yarn. It isn’t cheap though. It was $8.50 for a small ball. I had enough for the gloves, plus a little extra for if I wanted to add a pretty edging. I thought about it, but I decided to just stick with a simple project for my first use.

Down below is a picture of the yarn, and a picture of the fingerless gloves. I accidentally tore the label while looking at it.

I decided to put the gloves into my Etsy shop so somebody who knows about wool would be able to take care of them more than I can. I don’t know anything about merino wool. I found out that this particular yarn has a mixture of regular merino wool and super wash merino wool. That would make these hand wash only. They are cheaper than I would normally sell them for since I’m new to working with wool and they are simple.

If you are interested in buying these fingerless gloves the link is below to the listing in my Etsy store.
