DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: O-Wash Sport by O-Wool (100% Washable GOTS Certified Organic Merino Wool; 100g/336yds): 3 Skeins, 1 of each color. Shown in Devil's Pool, Watermill, & Paw Paw. This environmentally friendly yarn is spun and dyed in Philidelphia by local artisans & mills from South American merino wool. O-Wool only uses low impact dyes as well as the new GOTS certified organic compound to create washability. This compound holds the wool fibers in place during washing and drying, preventing them from interlocking during agitation which is what causes shrinkage and felting.
ALTERNATE YARN: Arroyo by Malabrigo (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/335yds): 3 Skeins, 1 of each color. Use Arroyo if you would like a bit of color variegation from the kettle-dyed, Uruguayan, superwash yarn. The colors are spectacular and will astound even the tried and true knitter.
