Owl Tweet is a lot like our pretty Owl. It’s soft, lofty, and light and just like the other bird, it knits up between 4 ½ to 5 stitches per inch. The difference? Tweet has little nubs of soft wool that pop here and there from the background. We love its tweedy, rustic texture in everything from garter stitch to cables.

How to care for our wool and wool blends:
We recommend that you hand wash your wool project with gentle soap, such as Twig & Horn’s lanolizing Wool Soap, in cool water. If using a gentle soap such as Wool Soap, you do not have to rinse. If you use a regular detergent, rinse it thoroughly and gently press out extra water and roll it lightly in a terry towel to absorb more of the moisture. Lay your project out to the correct measurements and let it dry naturally. If you want to speed up drying, aim a fan at the drying surface.

If you’d like to try machine washing your wool and wool-blend garments (not recommended), use cool water and a gentle cycle. After spinning, lay your garment flat to dry. And never, never put your knitted wool garment in the dryer.
