Corriedale Fingering

Corriedale is 80% superwash Corriedale wool and 20% nylon, so can double as both a sock yarn or nice drapey shawl yarn. For stitchers who like sheep-y wool, your day has come! Most Knitcircus Yarns are made from Merino wool and are very smooth, but this heritage sheep breed boasts a halo and a lofty, woolly feel. First developed in Australia and New Zealand in 1868, Corriedale crosses Merino and Lincoln sheep for a soft, long-staple wool, and these animals adapt well to dry and rugged climates. Popular in the Falkland Islands, this breed was brought to the USA in 1914.

                                Lavish: heavy fingering or light sport (discontinued Spring 2017)

                                Lavish was a Knitcircus exclusive yarn, with extra luxury built right in. It is a heavy fingering or light sport, depending on how you decide to categorize it. With 70% superwash Merino, 20% cashmere, and 10% nylon, it is super soft and plush indeed. Because it was heavier than we anticipated, we've added extra weight to the cakes of goodness to make sure you get the yardage you need; what we think of as "a 100g cake" will actually weigh 115-118g to ensure 400 yards.
