A yarn a day (4) - Holst Garn Wool/silk blend day four of show and tell...and the last of the Danish yarns that arrived last week.

Last but not least is Holst Garn wool/silk blend. The colour that I have chosen is aubergine which is gorgeous and already on the sticks of a friend - I'll post the end result when it is done.

With all of the yarns in the Holst Garn range, once the garment is complete you need to wash it in cold water where upon it will transform into supersoft delicious delights!

Details are:
Weight: Lace/2-ply
Unit: 50g
Yardage: 287 m/314 yds
Needle Size: 3-3.25 mm for single yarn or 4-4.5 mm with double yarn
Tension: 25 stitches to 10cm/4 in for single yarn and 16 stitches to 10cm/4 in for double yarn
Fibre: 75% wool/25% silk
Texture: Plied

Don't forget to pop back to tomorrow for a very special announcement....happy happy days!
