Sometimes, I feel like Aquarella and Gruesa get a little ignored. Since they’re made from a hardier wool than merino, they aren’t quite as Malabrigo-soft as some of our other wools, but they still have many redeeming qualities! I love the texture of each knit made with these thick and thin yarns, and each of the colorways knits up beautifully. Check out some lovely projects made from these yarns and get inspired to make your own.
