Garthenor No. 1
382 yards / 50g of lace weight yarn, 100% Shetland wool
Recommended needle size US 3 (3.25 mm)
No. 1 is the lightest member of the Garthenor yarn family, a single ply, woollen spun, heavy lace-weight yarn. It has a slightly rustic nature, and reaches its full potential once the yarn has been wet blocked.
Some knit this on US 8 (5mm) needles for open and airy lace work, or knit with US 00 (1.5mm) for a denser, tighter fabric. This laceweight yarn also works well knit as two strands held together – either as a solid shade or to create your own marl.
All shades are produced by blending up to 8 colors of fleece together to create a wonderfully heathered depth to each yarn.
