Organic Cotton, Wool, Cashmere
LIGHTNESS - SOFTNESS - NATURAL MATERIALS - CASHMERE
STUNNING YARN! HØST is a super soft, light and airy and full-bodied yarn, made of only natural materials, and as far as possible, of organic fibers. HØST is an exclusive yarn, since it is made of 75% organic cotton, 16% recycled wool and 9% cashmere.
HØST is made of a tube of organic cotton and is a blow yarn. The organic tube is dyed with a special spraying technique, which gives the yarn a beautiful melange and a unique play of colours. A blend of recycled wool and organic cashmere, is blown into the tube. The cashmere turns the yarn into a luxury yarn. The deep, earthy HØST colours are reminiscent to the beautiful colours of fall.
HØST is produced by an Italian spinning mill with consideration for both environment and animal welfare, thus the cotton and cashmere used is organic, and the wool is recycled.
HØST is suitable for everything from small projects as mittens, scarves, hats and vests, to bigger projects as sweaters and cardigans, and is a joy to work with.

It is recommended to HAND WASH the finished work with a wool detergent and lay it flat to dry.
When washing in the machine, the finished work can shrink up to 7%, but will stretch again in use. It is recommended to knit ribbing edges a little firm and slightly narrower, as these likewise will stretch in use.
