100% American merino wool
Sportweight: US Needle 3-4
I've featured Mountain Meadow Wool company and its American yarns on the blog before. Today's Pick of the Week is their sportweight merino wool: Cody.
Cody is a soft, springy 2-ply yarn that comes in undyed natural colors and in eco-friendly natural dyes as well. The Geranium color is a warm, friendly red that immediately attracted me and I started a ruffled edge shawl that was inspired by a shawl worn by Kate Middleton, recent bride to Prince William.
The shawl is approximately half-way finished and it is light, warm, drapey and soft. Knit at a tighter gauge, Cody would make excellent textured socks or garments. Right now I am enjoying making a warm cozy wrap in time for the cool weather of fall.
