This yarn is a twin from the Pure sock yarn, both have the same twist. To knit with this yarn is similar as the Pure sock yarn, for socks you only need 2-4 stitches less than usual.

For technical reasons it could be that with this quality there may be one knot which does still reach our quality standards.

Blend 70% wool (Merino), 20% Cashmere, 10% Polyamid:

Weight of skein:       150g = 499m = 545yd

Needle size:             3 mm - 4 mm

Blend is a mixture and we have combined the advantages of cashmere, merino and a part of polyamid to achieve the perfect balance of this mixture.

We believe that we have found the optimal twist for "Blend". The twisting should not lose the soft, fluffy character of the cashmere part but it should still be stable enough to avoid any strong pilling effect, which is often the case in cashmere yarns.

Because of mixing of cashmere, merino and polyamide some semi-solid colour-ways have turned out rather more „mixed“ than usual. In case several skeins of one colour are to be knitted together then a regular exchange of skeins should be aimed for. For technical reasons, with this quality, one knot per skein can occur. This still falls within our quality standards.

We made a slight mistake with our recommendation for the needle size. Blend should really be knitted using 3 – 4 mm needles and not with 2.5 mm – 3 mm as indicated on the first labels. Unfortunately, the first labels show a false textile abbreviation for Kashmir, it should be declared with "WS" of course,  also applies to the washing instructions printed on the band not for our blend quality. Here, use only cold water and use hand wash.

My sample knitted with 3.5 mm needles:

10 x 10 cm = 24 stitches/37 rows
