100% Highland Wool /Peru
Incawool by Hjertegarn is 100% highland wool from Peru. This soft, slightly fluffy wool is a single-ply yarn spun with a light twist. Each skein is 100 grams/ 160 meters (174 yards) and is Aran weight yarn. Incawool feels rustic, yet comfortably cozy and satiny and is suitable for sweaters, hats, ponchos and shawls or anything else you can imagine. Incawool is also suitable for felting.
The popular Sunday Cardigan from the Danish designer Petite Knit is knitted with 1 thread of Hjertegarn Incawool and 2 threads of thin silk mohair at the same time. I have substituted the 2 mohair silk threads with one Baby Suri Alpaca/silk.
MORE COLORS WILL BE ADDED SOON.
