All orders for yarn for Joan's patterns include a moon stitch marker to celebrate Paper Moon Knits.
This listing is for the original colors, Loganberry (MC) and Musk Mallow (SS) but there are so many other possibilities. Head over to the Aran Collection HERE to see other colors, or to have any Amanda Hope Yarn tonal dyed for you. This listing is also officially a PREORDER/DYED TO ORDER, but it will ship right away if we have all your yarn available from the same batch. And once you're finished your pullover, check to see if you have enough for Joan's Decker hat, designed in the same yarn. Or do the the Decker Hat to swatch and then go on to Taybern.
You will need to know if you want long sleeves (LS) or short sleeve (SS) and what size you require.
90% Superwash Merino (21.5 micron) 10% Linen Yarn in Aran/Worsted Weight
Two singles are lightly twisted together (two plies) to produce an aran weight yarn. A soft merino and linen blend yarn with texture and a gentle tweedy haze. Nylon free.
The natural linen gives the yarn a textured finish with subtle drape and produces a rustic, almost hand spun look when knitted up. When dyed the linen resists the dye and remains white, producing a halo of linen fibres.
