We are happy to add a new sport weight yarn to the shop. Rustic heather sport is a minimally processed non-superwash sport weight yarn. It is made with Canadian wool, spun in New Brunswick at Canada's oldest woolen mill, then hand dyed with care by Lichen and Lace.
The yarn is s single ply with a bit of a crimp. It feels a bit crunchy on the skein but blooms and softens nicely when blocked.
We love this yarn for colorwork knitting!
approx 215 yards/56 grams
23-26 stitches to 4” (10cm) on 3mm - 4mm needles
Fill a sink or basin with warm 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.
We do our best to photograph all our products accurately. We take the photos in our shop using natural light. Further variation can be caused by color differences on your screen and the actual color may be very different. If you have any questions please contact the shop.
