Holst Garn Coast is a light fingering weight blend of merino wool and cotton. This Danish yarn has long been a beloved staple in Europe and it is now happily finding its way to North American knitters. A soft yarn with a cottony feel, Coast can be machine washed on gentle wool cycle and it relaxes and blooms beautifully after a wash. The colour range is exquisite (we stock 41 shades). The yarn gets its subtle heathered colouring from the fact that it is dyed with a material that only reacts with the wool--the little wisps of white are the undyed cotton fibres. Coast can be knit single-stranded to create a fine light weight fabric or double-stranded for a DK weight fabric.
