Item details

Here's a nice yarn -- the very same yarn I have used to make my "Europa" headbands!

It is 80% wool and 20% camel. I chain-plied commercial singles by hand, using my spinning wheel, to make a sturdy 6-ply tweed yarn. It's a nice, tight twist, and absolutely perfect for my Europa Headband pattern, or heavy socks, or mittens, or a hat, or a scarf, or...? The possibilities are endless.

"Frosted Violets," in shades of heathery lavender and purple, is named for the flowers of February, which sometimes do end up getting dusted with snow during their blooming season.

I'm calling this line "Sporty DK" because the weight falls somewhere between the two: heavy sport weight and light DK weight. I recommend size 4 (US) needles or the equivalent size crochet hook for a tight, dense fabric.

Two weight and yardage variations are available through this listing.

You will have plenty left over if you decide to knit the Europa Headband, as that project only takes 110 to 125 yds.

The last photo shows a close-up of one of the Europa Headbands I knitted up as a prototype while testing the written pattern. I love the way the cable stitch looks in a good tweed!

PLEASE NOTE: this yarn is NOT superwash, so anything you make from it will have to be washed gently, by hand.

ALSO, PLEASE NOTE: I do my utmost best to take pictures that represent the color of my items accurately, but each monitor is different. What you are purchasing may look quite different on your monitor from what it does on mine.

All items come from a non-smoking home.
