My favorite is Merino

Merino is one of my favorite wines, and yarns!

I purchased this 100% Merino roving from CJ Kopec Creations
a few weeks ago and I'm dying to spin it up. It is called 'Broken Hearts' but it goes very well with the bottle of merino wine.

She custom blends the colors to create beautiful blends and this fiber 'ball' is the softest ever. And she has the cutest card attached to the roving.

Me, the Merino roving and a bottle of Merino wine are going to have a date night Friday in my spinning room!

Ohh how I understand you. My first encounter with a silk/polwarth blend had similar effect. Hope Troy accepts this new love affaire!

I've never heard of Merino wine... I've heard of Merlot but not Merino. Is it Italian?

I've never heard of Merino Wine either... I want to learn more. I agree that your Merino fiber blend is one of the softest I have ever seen. I can't wait to see how this spins up.

Well all wine is Merino in color, right!

Honestly, by merino I actually was thinking of Merlot.. oh well. Just don't go looking in the wine store for Merino, they may laugh at you.
