I adore Susanna's inspiration behind her beautiful Ursula wrap: "This design is named after my Grandmother, Ursula. It relates to the theme of heirloom in many ways. Ursula is also my middle name, so the name is an heirloom in itself. For me, knitting is a way to feel connected with her, even though she passed away many years ago now; it is a shared passion passed down through generations."
The design reflects a timeless aesthetic with intertwining cables and bobbles on a textured background. This wrap is worked flat and in one piece, from short end to short end. It features two cable and bobble columns on a background of horizontal ribbing. Both ends are detailed with a wide ribbed edge.
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!
