Sol is a gorgeously soft tape yarn. Made of the finest combed cotton, giving you the quick knit of a worsted weight yarn without all the weight of traditional cotton. Light weight, cool, and breezy like cotton should be, Sol is perfect for warmer weather or days inside air conditioned offices.
This yarn is great for both plain knits and textural stitchery, such as horseshoe cables. Easier to knit than plain cotton, since the tape structure is more elastic.
Sol is interchangeable with Sol Luxe and Sol Degrade for patterns, so there are many patterns for this yarn in the Fatto a Mano books. For a look with a tiny shimmer, see Sol Luxe.
