About This Yarn Sirdar Country Classic worsted is a soft, merino wool blend in a large and versatile palette of flattering shades. Worsted is the favourite yarn weight of Sirdar's North American customers. A little heavier than double knitting, it is ideal for year round knits with a little extra warmth.
What's it like to work with? The pure merino blend is beautifully soft and comfortable to work and your stitches will glide over your needles. Experienced knitters will especially enjoy the excellent stitch definition and opportunity to showcase your skills in this weight.
What is it best for? Worsted is a real all-rounder. Excellent stitch definition keeps intricate colour work and textured stitches clear and crisp. And because the soft, cosy merino is blended with acrylic, heavily textured larger knits remain wonderfully light and easy to wear.
