Garthenor No. 3
(yardage varies by breed type, see list below) worsted weight yarn, 100% wool
Recommended needle size US 6 (4.00 mm)
No. 3 is woollen spun into a round and bouncy three ply yarn, that loves to be worked in cables and shows excellent stitch definition.
No. 3 is able to produce a denser fabric than No. 2, whilst still keeping the light and airy qualities. Its construction means that it will drape fairly lightly and become your go-to yarn for a variety of sweaters and wardrobe staples.
Garments will achieve their full beauty once they’ve been wet blocked as the stitches relax.
17-20 sts = 4” size US 6-7
