The model is knit from Reynolds Whiskey (100% wool, 195 yd 177 m 50 g), in colors Dark Pink #131 (main color) and Light Grey #31 (contrasting color). You will need about half a skein of each color. Because this pattern is stranded, if you substitute a different yarn, it is recommended you choose a somewhat “sticky” yarn - one with a slight tendency to felt.
