    Einband

    $7.75

    Garments made from Einband stretch and are therefore difficult to measure until they have been washed. It is recommended that you make a swatch, soak and block it and then measure it when dry to find the exact gauge and needle size to achieve accurate measurements in the finished piece. After washing, the wool becomes soft and manageable.

    Fibre: 100% New Wool
    Gauge Options:
    30 sts to 10 cm (4") over St st on 2.5 mm (US 1).
    17 sts to 10 cm (4") over St st on 4mm (US 6).
    15 sts to 10 cm (4") over St st on 6mm (US 10).
    Yardage: 250 m. (273 yd.)
    Weight: Lace or Light Fingering, 50 grams
