Our House Blend no. 1 is a true fingering weight yarn. It creates a soft and drapey fabric and has a mid-range twist, not too tight and not too loose.

• Blend no. 1 is composed of 80% superwash fine Merino wool, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon.

• Use for next-to-skin accessories like shawls, cowls, fingering weight hats and mitts.

• Not ideal for socks because of the fine wool and cashmere content (which means socks will pill and won’t last as long).

• For shawls, aim for a gauge of 20 to 24 stitches per inch, which is usually achieved with a needle size of US 4 to 6 (3.5 to 4.0 mm).
