This 60% acrylic and 40% superwash merino wool blend yarn is really soft and offers a nice choice for a large project that needs to be machine washable....like an afghan for a child/baby or a sweater for the son going off to live in a dorm! New from Cascade Yarns, this blend is a nice alternative to Encore Chunky, which has fewer color options. Pacific Chunky is softer (the wool is merino) and more insulating than Encore (40% wool vs. Encore's 25%). We also have a large selection of colors of this yarn in a worsted weight.
