100% Aran weight peruvian highland wool. This 2 ply construction yields subtle texture and a light weight fabric. Great yardage of 191 yds in a 100g hank. Wide palette of colors to choose from- plus many tweed shades too.
If you love Mosaic work like I do, you will love this cowl. Easy knitting in 2 contrasting shades of Homestead.
Falkland Aran is the softest wool you might ever feel!
The fleece of the Falkland sheep is particularly white, thus giving beautiful, pure shades when dyed, while the softness of the fibre lends luxury to the knitted fabric. Many colors to choose from, and now at 40% off!
