As generous a yarn as we could dream up, Purl Soho’s Gentle Giant is for anyone with a soft spot for cozy and an eye for beauty! In a dozen Heather colors, plus classic Heirloom White, our windswept palette draws from nature’s rustic spirit. Gentle Giant is a loosely spun single ply of pure merino that knits up at a great, big 1 1/2 stitches to the inch. It’s the perfect go-to yarn for quick-but-gorgeous knits: warm winter blankets, sumptuous hats and scarves, and high-drama cowls! (P.S. If you notice that the gauge for Gentle Giant is slightly different than they used to be, don’t worry the yarn has not changed! We’ve just refined our thinking a little…)
