This unusual single ply yarn was made for us by Diarmuid at S Twist Wool. The light and dark colour pairs are created by overdyeing naturally light and dark grey Jacob wool with the same colour.
100g and 400 metres per skein.
3.53oz and 437 yards per skein.
6 sts = 1" on US 4, 3.5mm needles.
7sts = 1" on US 3, 2.5mm needles.
100% wool, Jacob
At 6 stitches per inch the light, airy fabric created is incredibly warm. The rather crunchy texture is ideal for colour work.
For the Threipmuir sweater you'll need 1 skein each of the contrast colours and 3 skeins of the main colour for sizes 32-46 and 4 for all other sizes.
Please note the Yellow on Light Grey currently in stock is slighty greener than the Yellow on Light Grey used in the Threipmuir sample.
