From The Fibre Co, a refined blend of wools make up this understated worsted weight yarn.
236 yards/ 100g twisted hank, wind before using.
Suggested gauge, 18-20 sts/4" with size 6-8(US) needles.
90% wool-- a blend of brown masham wool and merino, 10% mohair. Masham is a sheep breed with similar wool to Teeswater, which makes it a long staple, shiny, lustrous wool. Paired with merino wool for softness and bounce, plus mohair for shine, halo and more strength.
This is a yarn for cherished heirloom projects, wonderful timeless sweaters, and hard wearing accessories. Our Oban cardigan on display, left, is knit with 6 skeins of Blencathra (a rich off-white). Coming in July, a re-stock, and in August, an Oban knit-along!
