DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Cashmerino 20 by Sweet Fiber Yarns (70% Merino Wool / 20% Cashmere / 10% Nylon; 115g/400yds): 1 (1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3) Skeins. Shown in Sea Glass, Canary, & Spanish Coin
ALTERNATE YARN: O-Wash Fingering by O-Wool (100% Washable Organic Merino Wool; 100g/428 yds): 1 (2, 3) Skeins. O-Wash Fingering is the gentlest yarn to use against sensitive baby skin. It is Merino Wool, the softest of the wool breeds and is dyed with low impact dyes. O-Wash lines use the GOTS certified compound that holds the fibers in place so that it remains washable and prevents felting. This environmentally friendly yarn is milled and dyed on the east coast from South American Merino Wool. O-Wool yarns are tonal and create solid colored garments. Please alternate skeins to maximize color blending.
ALTERNATE YARN: Sock by Malabrigo (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/440yds): 1 (2, 3) Skeins. Malabrigo has the most vibrant and variegated colors due to their kettle-dyeing process. This is a traditional superwash yarn from Uruguay and will easily become your favorite superwash brand. Please alternate skeins to prevent color pooling as it can be rather pronounced due to the unique qualities of each skein.
