Forge and its little sibling Weld are our first 100% US-made yarns - and we're the first European stockists of Hudson + West, the fabulous company who makes them! A heathered blend of 70% Merino and 30% Corriedale, Forge is spun up to a worsted weight. It's a round, extremely well-balanced 3ply yarn that works so, so well for cables and texture. It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom after blocking. One of our new favorites!

Haven’t started knitting with Forge but it’s lovely!
Feels lovely. I’m familiar with the wool after living in New Mexico Going to make a hat with it
Glad I tried it!
I am glad I you gave me the chance to try this yarn out for a little one skein project. It is smooth and shows of cables and texture very well. I like the hat I knitted from this yarn, but honestly I wouldn‘t knit a garment out of it, because it‘s on the upper price range and not affordable for me. But with one skein I now have a very special luxurious treasure.
