Weld and its big sibling Forge 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, Weld is spun up to a lovely fingering weight. It's a well-balanced three-ply yarn, with a slightly more energetic twist for strength and durability.It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom after blocking that makes it perfect for lace, texture, colorwork and stockinette. One of our new favorites!
