Product Details

  • Main Yarn: We no longer carry the yarn we originally used, but an excellent substitute is 1 (1, 1, 1, 2, 2) skeins of Purl Soho's Flax Down, 43% baby alpaca, 42% extra fine merino, and 15% linen.
  • Contrast Yarn: 1 skein of Madelinetosh's Tosh Merino, 100% superwash merino. We used the color Edison Bulb.
  • A set of US 6 double pointed needles (or size needed to get the correct gauge)
