Halo - 4 Ply 100% Lambswool - Pop Red
4 ply weight Halo is full of lightness and bounce, perfect for feather light lace accessories or lightweight gauzy sweaters. With remarkable lightness and warmth Halo is a woolen spun yarn delicately twisting 2 plies together to preserve the buoyant quality.
It can equally be knitted on smaller needles for a beautifully even and sturdy fabric.
Dyed into a collection of 14 shades, from delicate muted marled colours to bright solid strong colours.
The lambswool fibres are spun in an historic mill in Yorkshire before being hand skeined and having their batch number hand written on them.
Halo has great flexibility of gauge, it can be knitted on 4mm needles for ethereal openwork or 3mm needles for a denser firmer fabric. Garments knitted from Halo benefit from wet blocking allowing each stitch to relax producing an even, light fabric with a halo.
Halo is designed to be versatile from stockinette or lace work to cables, ribbing and textures, working well for accessories, garments and blankets or throws. It is also a baby wool and is wonderful for baby garments and accessories.
