I love working with materials that are organic and not treated with chemicals. There’s nothing covering the beauty of the wool, nothing masking the true nature of the yarn. A bit rustic and wooly on the needles, the yarn knitted up is softer, full of depth. Long, ribbed leg warmers for a cold day.

yarn: Treliske Organic Merino in Brown Tweed, approximately 120 g
