When we first discovered Hudson + West Co and their yarns, we knew we had found just the type of wool that floats our boat. We are so delighted to be the Australian stockists for this quality brand that shares our ethos of beautiful yarns making modern classic pieces that will last a lifetime (and possibly longer!).
From H+W - "Like its big sibling, Forge, Weld is made from a heathered blend of 70% U.S. Merino (sourced in Colorado and New Mexico), and 30% U.S. Corriedale (sourced in New York) wool. Weld is a well-balanced three-ply yarn, with a slightly more energetic twist for strength and durability. It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom that produces both beautiful stockinette fabrics and delicate lace, texture, and brioche, and is perfect for stranded colorwork. Weld blooms beautifully and easily knits up on larger needles; we like it on anywhere from a US 3 to a US 6 (3.25 to 4.00 mm), depending on the application."
We stock a selected range of hard copy patterns which showcase the excellent properties of this yarn; with more available online.
