House Blend no. 2 is a fingering weight yarn and leans toward heavy fingering. It creates a soft, plush and still drapey fabric and has a lovely firm twist.

• Blend no. 2 is composed of 70% superwash fine Merino wool, 20% 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 mean that socks will pill and won’t last as long).

• For shawls, aim for a gauge of 18 to 24 stitches per inch, which is usually achieved with a needle size of US 5 to 6 (3.75 to 4.0 mm).
