cormo and other wool breeds

Available in ten luscious shades of black marbled with a hum of rich colour; there is a Nightshade for every mood. This 3-ply American Cormo and Wool blend combines to form a light and airy DK weight yarn that is soft yet distinct. The woollen spun structure means that it can be worked at a wide range of gauges and is a bit closer to a Worsted weight. There's a spring to this yarn that makes it fun on the needles thanks to the fine z crimp that traps air and memory into the twist. It means that whilst there's plenty of dark tones, cables and textured stitches all but rise out of the fabric to create some beautiful light and shadow play across the knit piece.

Woolly sheep raised in Montana, scoured in Texas, dyed in Philadelphia, and spun in New Hampshire Harrisville yarns are a taste of American heritage.

All the yarn is black, blended with the following colours. Harrisville have also launched a design collection of sweaters and accessories by Whitney Hayward which are available as individual pattern pdfs.
