Think shawls, light wraps, blankets and sweaters, especially for those who want a lighter weight garment. The wool/cotton will bloom a bit when washed and is perfect for children's wear too, and those garments where you want the softness of a cotton blend next to your skin. The quality is very suitable for children and those with sensitive skin, as it contains the warmth of wool and the lightness and the “fatness” of cotton.
This yarn knits up beautifully in the Topstykke tunic by Bente Geil. This top-down piece is length adjustable, so you can make it the length of a tee, a dress or anything in between! This pattern also has versions for girls and larger women's sizes.
