Griffon is a smooth 2 ply-yarn made of superwash merino wool. This soft and mellow knitting yarn is a heavy worsted - aran weight yarn: use knitting needles of 6 mm (US-10) to turn this yarn into a cozy knitted project. Gauge, feel and look very similar to the well known Cascade Yarn 128 but with more yardage and of course, dyed by hand :)
Each skein of Griffon is 100 gr (3.5 oz) 166 meters (180 yards) and is made of 100% merino superwash wool. Gauge is 15-16 sts = 10 cm (4") on 5.5 to 6.5 mm knitting needles.Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Enjoy your knitting with our hand-dyed yarn Griffon!
This yarn was much heavier than 'worsted' gauge in the US. But it is so vibrant and worked up into brilliant stripes. Lovely!!
So very happy with my purchase of 2 skeins of this wonderful yarn! As soon as they arrived, I caked them and cast on a project right away. So so soft! Perfect for a toddler hat and scarf! Super service! I will be ordering more yarn in the future!
Thank you James for this nice review :)
