For a sweater in size EU 38 you need ~ 500 g of yarn

Care: Hand wash, gentle in cool water with pH neutral soap. Do not agitate! While alpaca does not felt as easily as sheep’s wool, with enough heat and agitation it will.
Notes: Due to the variation of water chemistry, your yarn may bleed a small amount - take care mixing colors and pre-washing your skein is recommended if knitting with contrasting colors.
Always alternate rows and skeins for patterns using more that one skein.

Dining in Japan is an experience, especially when one enjoys a kaiseki, or multi-course meal. The hassun is traditionally the second course in this multi-course meal, which typically embraces the local, seasonal offerings. My HASSUN yarn is inspired by the seasons, and the seasonal produce.
