Halo Yarn

Halo Yarn

Winter may be slowing us down this morning, but we have a treat for you this afternoon.  We are debuting a gorgeous new, limited-edition yarn we call Halo.  This is a lovely, wool/sheared angora blend that is hand-painted by Mineville Wool Project. It isn't "hairy" like regular angora, but has a feel, to me, more like cashmere.  Halo will knit up beautifully at around 5.5 st/in (4 mm needle) perfect for a soft shawl or a light, but warm, sweater.  Held double, it can be used for any pattern calling for worsted- or aran-weight yarn.  It is hand-washable and has a generous 400 m per 100 g skein.
