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.
PLEASE NOTE that the sample shown was knitted with our Bis-Sock yarn (fingering). This item you are looking at here is dyed on GRIFFON
Enjoy your knitting with our hand-dyed yarn Griffon!
Very nice yarn
I love this yarn!
This yarn was much heavier than 'worsted' gauge in the US. But it is so vibrant and worked up into brilliant stripes. Lovely!!
This yarn is amazing and I will be ordering more in the future. It is so nice to work with and the finished projects are soft and beautiful.
The very gentle variegated colors and soft texture make this yarn just outstanding. Love it.
