Spotlight on Yarn: Loopy Mango Merino No. 5

Friends, Koryn and I have been wanting to bring in the lovely Loopy Mango line of yarns for some time now, so when I had the opportunity to meet them at H+H in Chicago this summer and feel their gorgeous, Merino No. 5 yarn, I knew it needed to come home with me.

Comprised of 100% merino in a chunky ply, this unbelievably soft and cozy yarn is perfect for quick projects. Create oversized sweaters in tender neutral shades or make a statement with with accessories in paintbox brights.


One ball is enough for a beanie or a cowl, 3 for a long scarf or shawl and 4 to 7 for a sweater or a cardigan.  Here are some pattern suggestions for your to peruse (and if you're like me, cast-on!)...
