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 is a fantastic yarn - soft and beautifully dyed with a lovely amount of bounce. For an aran weight yarn, this isn't heavy or too drapey at all. I am using it for a shawl with honeycomb cables and it has turned into one of my all-time favorite projects because of this yarn. I will definitely be back for more. Highly recommended!!!
Absolutely stunning yarn!! I ordered this for a worsted weight project and I was initially concerned that this would be too heavy (merino yarn in aran weight can be very heavy/drapey) but it has an incredible amount of bounce. I will definitely be using this yarn again and again. The customer service and delivery were also excellent.
I'm really impressed with the Griffon yarn. The yarn is soft and lofty, and a great Aran weight- it knits up at a great gauge but doesn't ever feel heavy. The colours didn't bleed at all during wet blocking, and I even (shh, don't tell) have put the finished knit in the tumble dryer for ten minutes to hurry up the drying process and the yarn looked great afterwards. I'm definitely planning on using this yarn again.
