Wash Care:

A delightful blend of cashmere, yak and wool with some slubby textural detail. Available in five subtle melange colourways. Top tip: this yarn needs gentle handling. A simple spritz with water and light press through a cloth transforms the knitted result into a light as air piece of art to be treasured.

Hat designer extraordinaire Woolly Wormhead has developed tthree patterns using this yarn, Half Theory, the unisex Slipped Ridge and the charming Cubbed.

Affordably priced at just £6.95 per 25g, the generous meterage will see a decent pair of gloves or beanie from just two balls.
