Available in 500g cones with approx 1,200 yards, 100% British Worsted 5 ply Guernsey Wool yarn is the Real McCoy created specifically for knitting Ganseys, Guernseys, Cornish Knit Frocks and Fisherman's Sweaters. But don't think that's all you can knit with this versatile yarn.
Traditional ganseys are typically knit at a tight gauge of 32 stitches/36 rows per 4" on a US1. But you can knit any sports weight project and gauge the needles accordingly, or, if you fancy knitting color work then up your needle size and see these gorgeous colors pop. Whatever you knit, be sure to knit, wash and dry a gauge swatch first.
This sports weight yarn is made of 5 plies smoothly twisted together and is available in 20 colors all of which is spun and dyed in Yorkshire, England. The colors available represent traditional colors as well as more modern complex colors.
