An icon of American craft, Germantown was developed in Philadelphia in the early 1800s. The name Germantown is synonymous with a good quality worsted yarn. Germantown is made in the US using 100% US grown wool. The yarn is skeined in a classic center pull, giving it a fun vintage vibe. Perfect for a variety of projects from hats to sweaters, this workhouse worsted weight yarn is soft and durable.

Hand-wash in cool water, lay flat to dry.
Our favorite method for washing all hand knits! Fill a sink or basin with cool water and submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there. Soak work for 20-30 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
