Garthenor Number 1


Strong and soft, Garthenor’s Number 1 is a light single-ply, woollen-spun heavy lace.

This is a tactile yarn that is slightly rustic in nature and transforms beautifully with wet blocking. It is also incredibly versatile to knit with – choose 5mm needles for open and airy lace work, or switch to 1.5mm for a denser, tighter knit fabric. It can also be knitted with two strands held together for a solid shade or a creative marl.

The shades are produced by blending up to eight colours together creating a wonderfully heathered depth for exceptional knitted and crocheted projects.
