As seen on the cover of Vogue Knitting!
Cardo is a chunky 4 ply yarn made of 100% non superwash, unbleached, Uruguayan Corriedale wool.
We love this wool for its long and strong staple that has a lot of shine and crimp, which gives the yarn excellent bounce, stitch definition, and a knitted fabric that will retain its shape very well.
Classic in its construction and hand, Cardo feels familiar and true, like that beloved place you return to time and time again for comfort.
Cardo is the perfect sweater yarn, it knits fast and will show off cables and fancy stitches. We also love it for home goods like pillows and blankets. Cardo gives pristine stitch definition to warm knits that work up in a hurry. Hygge in a skein.
Give Cardo a try with this adorable free hat pattern:
Two skeins makes two hats if you alternate the colours!
Manos has also provided two other free pattern options for the launch.
