COUGAR - a warm, moody mix of gold, toffee, flecks of plum and gray, hints of aqua blue, taupe and more. Like a perfectly content cougar, resting in the twilight hour after a strenuous day. Our April 2019 animal color of the month!
•A heart-warming, twisted sport weight yarn with tweed flecks!
"TWISTED" TWEED SPORT YARN - a stunning, cozy blend of 2 types of wool spun into a cool barber pole effect. Flecked throughout are brown, gold and plum neps that don't take the dye, resulting in a soul-satisfying tweed look.
•2-plies twisted together (one ply is superwash, one is not), each taking the dye slightly differently = a unique twisted look.
•Bounce, softness and warmth - we chose beautiful, soft merino wool for this yarn which has a vibrant bounce, so your project will hold its shape.
•43% superwash merino wool, 42% fine merino wool, 15% donegal.
•This base has such an earthy, homey, charming feel. It can be dressed down and worn in the most casual of cozy settings or dressed up for elegant occasions. It's got a certain heirloom, heritage, yet hip, modern vibe to it.

•Hand-wash and air dry for best long-term results.

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
I am in love with the earthy hues of this yarn. The swirls of toffee, tawny, and gold with hints of plum, green, blue and green are absolutely gorgeous. I intended to use it for Christmas presents but I will use it in either the Harmony or Compassion patterns. Plus it's super soft. I can't wait to have it around my shoulders this fall!
I got the yarn yesterday and it looks beautiful, even my husband liked the colors in it. But I am unable to provide a review at this time on how it knits. Later on would b3 better.
