Great for any worsted or Aran weight project, from accessories to sweaters to afghans and more! Apres Ski is a super soft and squishy wool/nylon blend yarn in a heavier worsted weight. This yarn has a smooth twist that is easy to knit or crochet, and creates wonderful stitch definition in its bold and bright variety of colors.
This is our first yarn from Knit One Crochet Too, a highly respected brand name and a company dedicated to first quality yarns. You may know this brand from Ty Dye Cotton, the best known and long standing favorite yarn.
Looking for a lofty yarn with a soft feel, lots of yardage and clear, bright, colors? From colorwork to cables, APRES SKI is the perfect choice.
- 70% wool, 30% nylon
- 100g skeins contain 197 yards (180m)
- 17-18 st = 4" on US 7-8 needles (4.5-5 mm); Use a 5mm hook for crochet
- Hand wash, lay flat to dry. The manufacturer claims no shrinkage in a washing machine, but there may be undesirable fulling. However, this yarn is not a classic felting yarn and we would not recommend it for felting.
- A fabulous value: a 40" stockinette woman's sweater will take 6 skeins, about $45!! Can't beat it!
