Queensland Collection - Kathmandu Aran 100 Yarn - Seaweed 18

A merino, silk, cashmere blend that is a rustic rock grey-green.   Normally this drab shade is uninviting, but with subtle flecks of black, and lighter spots where the silk took the dye differently, this is truly a lovely shade.  Kathmandu Yarn is a perfect worsted weight and knits to approximately 4.5 sts per inch on a US#8 (5mm) needle.  It is an unusually soft and smooth tweed blend in a made in Italy. This luxurious merino, silk and cashmere fiber gives you a truly wonderful finished project.

Easy to knit or crochet.   Hats, scarves or garments are ideal for this yarn.  Reminiscent of home spun yarns or a rustic tweed with its' some what nubby textured.  Some colors have a tweed color added in.  The colors are deeply saturated shades.  Can't say too much about this truly classic and wonderful yarn.

    This yarn has a wonderful silky texture and excellent stitch definition. BThe Seaweed shade is as described, a lovely greenish gray. Makes a surprisingly good neutral, in my opinion.
