    An excellent yarn

    Posted by Carolyn on 27th Nov 2019

    I was drawn to Holst Garn Coast for the wide variety of colors, but wanted something a little more extravagant than wool/cotton for a present, so chose Tides. The yarn was a little coarse while I was working it up, and the plies occasionally split when I was using my pointier needles. A little attention to that, and blocking ... and the results were so soft and lovely that I ordered more within the week to make the same thing for myself.

    Used for: Scalloway Yokes, by Ann Feitelson. Single strand.
