Wrap yourself a luxe blend of Merino wool and nettle, a plant fiber similar to linen which has a silky-soft hand in this yarn. A large field of cabled lace on a background of garter stitch is framed by dramatic peaks of openwork and twisted stitches. The overall effect is delicate, feminine, and captivating.
