Stripey Cat Yarns 3
This is a kit to knit for the Montana Mountain cowl by Andrea Mowry, the pattern is available on Ravelry. Photo credit Andrea/Peter Mowry.
I'm absolutely obsessed with this pattern it's such alot of fun and it's just stunning.
The kit consists of 1 x 100g skein and 10 x 10g mini skeins.
It's available on two separate bases; non superwash 4ply 100g/385m or superwash merino yak with sw merino/nylon mini skeins 100g/400m.
In the photograph non superwash is on the left. The non superwash kit is entirely non superwash 4ply 100g/385m and you will receive a 100g grey skein as the main colour and 10 x 10g mini skeins also on the non superwash base.
Ror the superwash kit the main colour 100g skein is a superwash merino yak and nylon yarn 55% merino 20% yak and 25% nylon. This is it's natural colour and is undyed. For the contrast colour you have 10 x 10g mini skeins which have been dyed on a superwash merino nylon base 75%/25%. Yardage 100g/400m.
The non superwash wool is quite plump compared to the superwash wool and I wouldn't consider it to be scratchy. It has a bit of toothiness and definitely isn't sw merino soft but lovely all the same!
The yarn is hand dyed in small batches with professional dyes in a smoke-free environment. Though this yarn is washable, I recommend hand-washing your finished object with a wool wash such as soak. Minimal colour bleeding may occur during the first few washes, so please wash apart from other items.
