A traditional 5-ply gansey yarn in a wide range of colours. It is available as 500 g cones, and from some retailers as 100 g balls or 100 g cones. Please adjust yardage at stash level.

The traditional gansey tension is achieved with 2.25 or 2.5 mm needles, but the yarn also works well with larger needles to give a more forgiving fabric.

“For knitting traditional ganseys you will be knitting to a gauge of 32 stitches and 36 rows of 4 inches, this is usually achieved on size 2.25mm (US size 1) needles but everyone is different so experiment to find what is most comfortable for you.”
