The BACH base is a clever 70/30 mix of organic merino wool and linen plied yarn. The linen provides its classic drape, artisan look, and light summery attitude. The wool brings softness, and adds a touch of memory creating a really versatile, beautiful yarn. It dyes so wonderfully with the linen resisting the dye creating rustic, heathered beauty.
This yarn is perfect for sweaters, t-shirts, and shawls - or any project not subject to hard wear (socks would be a no go for me - I'd recommend Prosper Sock for those).
28sts x 36 rows on 3.25mm needle, however, gauge is flexible depending on the fabric you desire.
