Trean is the Gaelic word for strong. The wrought iron gate stranded colorwork pattern gives a sense of majestic strength and yet has a classic beauty all it’s own.

This elegant piece start with a simple one-by-one rib that transitions quickly into wrought iron colorwork. The tam has a gentle slouch that is perfect for every day wear. This yarn produces a soft fabric with just a slight halo.
