I recommend Merino Aran to anyone who’s picking up knitting needles for the first time. It’s soft, durable and easy to work with, making it ideal for scarves, hats and sweaters. More experienced knitters will enjoy its versatility and plump texture – I find it really makes cables and Aran patterns pop!
