Ailm (named for the Celtic symbol for strength, endurance, and healing) is inspired by the craggy-faced mountains in the Hudson River Valley. Hike any trail along the Hudson River and you’ll find rock-faced walls challenging you to find the pitted hand and foot holds up to the summit. Ailm mimics the charming natural obstacle courses with repeating antler and rope cables that flow seamlessly in and out of the ribbing.
Covered in handsome cables, this scarf is incredibly soft and cozy, as well as light and airy. Worked from end-to-end, Ailm is fully charted and easy to memorize. An integrated I-cord edge worked at the same time results in a perfectly polished finish at bind off.

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
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.
