Wool Local is the latest offering from the Erika Knight collection. It is a fine blend of two classic, British long wools - Blue Faced Leicester and Masham. Long wools mean less pilling, superior drape, and just a hint of natural sheen compared to their fine wool cousins like Merino. This yarn was designed to demonstrate all the best qualities of traditional, Yorkshire yarns, and every thing from fleece purchase to finished skeins takes place within a 50 mile radius! This wool is soft, yet strong; loosely spun, yet smooth. The limited color palette means that all shades complement each other and your wardrobe nicely. The lightweight fabric this makes would be ideal for transitional garments and barely-there accessories.
100% Wool with approximately 492 yards per 100g that knits to 7 stitches per inch on a US 3 (2.35mm) needle.
