Our z-twist yarn makes your stitches stand out! You won’t believe how gorgeous even the simplest patterns look in Whims Merino.
Furls has championed crocheters from day one. For our first yarn, Whims Merino, we dove deep into the mechanics of crocheting to discover that the ply, or twist, of your yarn affects the way you crochet, the way your stitches are formed, and the way your final projects come out. Conventional yarns with an "S-Twist" lead to split stitches. Why?
Every time you yarn over, you produce a clockwise motion around the axis of the working yarn. The counterclockwise ply of conventional S-Twist yarns goes under an inverse twist during the YO and that yarn will slowly begin to de-ply (strands separate). This is why we've plyed our yarn in the same direction that you move your hook - rather than separating as your work, our Z-Twist Whims Merino yarn will maintain ply and firmness. This IMPROVES your stitch defintion, drape, and structure.
