Merletto is Julie Asselin's laceweight yarn. It comes in all the colours you know and love from bases like Leizu Fingering or Melange No. 1. A smooth, round lace weight yarn, Merletto is soft and silky from its cashmere and silk content and would be great used on its own for drapey shawls or held double for lightweight and classic garments.
