Kits from Koigu for Andrea Mowry's Comfort Fade Cardi include Koigu's Kersti. Koigu Kersti Merino Crêpe is a luxurious DK weight yarn. Tightly spun into a crêpe, which increases the natural elasticity and loft of the merino, Kersti is a perfect yarn for garments and accessories such as sweater, skirts, hats, and scarves. The high twist of this yarn gives it a crisp, lively feel and highlights the soft, plush texture of the merino. Kersti is available in a beautiful array of magnificent hand painted variegated colorways, as well as an incredible palette of semi-solid hues that are hand dyed to perfection.
