TRIED & TESTED
Spun as a DK weight, the Castlemilk Moorit yarn from Dodgson Farm is sold as two different blends. When blended with Bluefaced Leicester wool, it produces a slightly paler yarn with a light halo, whereas the Cheviot blend is a touch darker and has sharper stitch definition. Both yarns are a joy to knit; soft, bouncy and smooth, with a sturdy finish that holds its shape. Stocking stitch, garter stitch and cables look equally good, making the yarn perfect for cosy accessories such as hats, mitts, cowls and scarves, or comfy cardigans and sweaters. Suggested patterns to try in this yarn: ‘Otter Cove’ cardigan from Issue 107 of The Knitter; ‘Norderney’ jumper from Issue 106; ‘Caradoc’ men’s sweater from Issue 89; or the ‘Herring Girl Wrap’ from Issue 55.
