While we love the sun-dappled days of August, there is also the sweet anticipation of sinking our fingers into the softest chunkiest yarns that we can scoop up as summer swings into early autumn. Every so often, a yarn catches our eye, a little plumper and more pliable than all the rest or as we like to refer to it, the gotta-have-it yarn. Sublime has created just that, a wonderful cushiony-soft super chunky wool spun from Italian extra fine merino. Lola comes in the most irresistible array of powdery pastels, refined neutrals and contemporary shades.
