Here is the technical info about the yarn: Mountain Colors Yarns Bearfoot (60% superwash wool, 25% mohair, 15% nylon); 400yds per 100g skein.
When I first opened the package I was struck by two things: the intense saturation of the colors and the incredible softness of the yarn. The colors I received are Harmony Sunset (wine/rust) and Lupine (royal/purple/green).
I decided to try out a variety of stitch patterns in the Harmony Sunset skein. I used a size US 2 needle, but, being a very loose knitter, it is probably closer to a size US 4 for a more ‘average’ knitter. I worked up my swatch in Stockinette stitch, a knit/purl texture, simple cables, and simple lace.
Big thank you to Mountain Colors Yarns for providing this gorgeous yarn!
