Merino Yarn

Merino is one of the most popular and finest wool fibres in the world. It is soft, and protects us from both the cold and the heat. You can find a wide variety of yarns containing merino wool at Katia. They include Katia Merino 100%Basic Merino, Merino Aran or Merino Sport. Each of these yarns has a colour palette ranging from naturals through to pastels and bright tones.

Tips for combining colours

There’s no doubt that combining colours can sometimes be difficult. Therefore, we have a few tips to help you create the perfect colour palette. To start with, try a gradient colour effect using tones of the same colour. This is one of the easiest methods.

Additionally, you can use a neutral tone like grey, beige, white or black for the main colour. Then, combine it with other colours.
