Fly into the Knitfield Store and pick up some of Edel's top yarn choices for this season wrapped as a yarn cake. This weight of merino with mohair tweed is blended for Edel in a select colour palette each season.
70 % merino wool dyed and spun locally here in Donegal and combined with 30% mohair.
Mohair brings lightness, strength and a lustre to the wool base. What knitters call a 'halo' means the yarn knits on a larger needle than one would expect.
This will make the most luxurious Aran, cabled or plain knit accessory or sweater.
The lightness of the mohair means you get extra yardage per weight and an even cosier knit.
Weight Aran weight x 100 grams
Yardage 200 metres (220 yards)
Needles Size 5mm or 4.5 mm for firmer knit (US 7 or 8 )
Gauge in Stockinette on 5 mm 18 sts and 24 rows for 4ins (10cm) square
2 or 3 (x100g) will make an incredible scarf, like the Success or Love patterns on our Knitfield Ireland Ravelry account. Allow 5/6 for a small stockinette sweater, 8 for an M-L Aran sweater
All dyes conform with EU REACH standards and all fleece is ethically sourced
