Sole is a wonderful blend of fine Pima cotton and fine cashmere, making it an unusual combination of plant and animal fibres not normally found in cotton yarn. The 90 percent Peruvian Pima cotton mixed with 10 percent Mongolian cashmere make Sole beautifully soft. It is a 6 ply yarn with a triple twist, which makes it strong and yet delicate and shiny.
Sole is lovely to work with and has beautiful stitch definition. It works equally well for both textured knitting and plain stockinette stitch, and is also perfect for crocheting.
Sole is an ideal all year round yarn. Perfect for light summer tops as well as warm cardigans and pullovers. It is also an excellent choice for accessories like scarves, shawls and hats. As it is so soft, it is a good alternative for those who find pure wool too scratchy against their sensitive skin.
Tip: It is advisable to always order enough yarn for your desired model to ensure you knit your entire project with yarn of the same dye batch. In case of doubt, please make a gauge sample immediately after receiving the yarn. In this way, you can estimate whether you have ordered sufficient quantity and, if necessary, reorder directly.
Hand or machine wash gentle, warm (up to 86°F/30°C) with mild detergent. Lay flat to dry in the shade. Low iron if needed.
