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 - "Forge 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. Forge is a round, well-balanced three-ply yarn. It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom that produces both beautiful stockinette fabrics and eye-popping cables. Forge is fabulous in sweaters, hats, mitts, cowls, and even large-format shawls, and knits up happily on needles in the US 6 - 8 (4.00 mm to 5.00 mm) range."
We stock a selected range of hard copy patterns which showcase the excellent properties of this yarn; with more available online.
