DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Magnum by Cascade Yarns (100% Wool; 250g/123yds): 2 Skeins. Shown in Ruby Heather. This 100% Wool yarn is warm, very popular, and beautiful! Please notes that it does shed substantially during the knitting process so you may want to work over a table or cover yourself with a towel. PRE-ORDER available in any color. Please allow at least 10 business days for pre-order shipping to your location.
ALTERNATE YARN: Bulky by Blue Sky Fibers (50% Alpaca / 50% Wool; 100g/45yd): 5 Skeins. This luxurious yarn has an amazingly soft hand and is available in natural or pastel colors. This yarn will have more drape than Magnum. Alpaca is very much like cashmere in its qualities of warmth and silkiness and is quickly becoming a favorite among knitters. If you haven't yet tried alpaca, now is the perfect opportunity to try this luxurious and beautiful yarn!
ALTERNATE YARN: Outer by Spud & Chloë (65% Superwash Wool / 35% Certified Organic Cotton; 100g/60yds): 4 Skeins. This hard working yarn is surprisingly soft and squishy and perfect for the stitch definition needed in this pattern. Pick a bold color to frame your face and pair with a neutral jacket for a stunning winter look. Use for warmer climates along the southern coast.
