Cotton Merino

Sometimes you really need to see the swatch, you know? The Katia Concept Cotton Merino looks really pretty in the ball and on the shelves, but the swatch is really the thing here. I love how the brushed wooliness creates such a nice halo around the lighter core. The knitted fabric ends up looking hand-dyed and visually interesting. 
We have a nice range of shades, from dark and stormy to light and springy. This yarn would be great for hats and scarves and cowls. I want to stripe that pale pink and spring green and creamy white into a cozy stockinette stitch cowl. Maybe this one. Or this one. Or something with fisherman's rib or brioche...this would do nicely with some plump ribbing. Any inspiration from you in blog land?
