Inspired by the woods and wilds of the Hudson Valley, Awen by Meghan Babin is an homage to her home. A story in stitches, this unisex pullover captures the essence of wooded trails, forest shelters and towers, and the many waterways of the Hudson River Valley. Designed to evoke the nostalgia of camp, fall hikes, and autumnal coziness, this heritage knit is an instant classic to cherish forever.
This raglan is made from the bottom up in pieces and seamed for stability and forever wear. Heavily cabled designs need the stability of seams to prevent the heavy fabric from stretching out over time. The neckband is picked up and worked in the round after seaming, then folded over and seamed for a cozy finish to this handsome sweater for everyone.

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.
