Colours : Pistachio, Turquoise, Aqua, Sterling & Pearl Holst Garn Tides is a 2-ply yarn, mixed by 70% Pure New Wool and 30% Silk. A wonderful knitting yarn combination where the Silk appears as small dots a la tweed in the Pure New Wool. Holst Garn Tides is a beautiful and very soft yarn - perfect for both knitting and crochet. Approximately 287 meters/314 yards in each pack. Knit with one thread at needles 3-3.5 mm/US 2.5-4 (Approx. 25 stitches = 10 cm/4 inches). Knit with two threads at needles 4-4.5mm/US 6-7 (Approx. 16 stitches = 10 cm/4 inches). Machine washable on a cold delicate wool program. Note: Holst Garn Tides contains a bit of spinning oil and excess dye. The oil and excess dye will disappear at the first wash - and the yarn will bloom and become soft.
