Holst Garn Coast is a 2-ply yarn, mixed by 55% Merino Lambswool and 45% Cotton.

Holst Coast is a fingering weight cotton and wool blend. It has the softness of cotton with the memory and resilience of wool.

Knit it single stranded for a fingering weight garment, or hold it double stranded for a gauge of about 22sts/4". 

This minimally processed yarn contains a small amount of spinning oil, as such we strongly recommend washing and drying your swatch before measuring it. It will bloom and soften considerably when washed.

You can also hold this yarn double to create a worsted/dk weight yarn.

Sandra and Aileen both held it single to make A Hint of Summer - Sandra's is here and Aileen's is here. Karen held it double to make Jessie's Mae's Northwoods V

For shawl knitters there is Lake Constance by Trin-Annelie. Pescadero Waves is a FREE baby blanket pattern by Heather Linebarger.

Note: Holst Garn Coast contains a bit of spinning oil and excess dye. The oil and excess dye will disappear at the first wash - and the yarn will bloom and become extremely soft. This is a case where machine washing on delicate is recommended over soaking it to block. We also recommend the use of colour catchers, if you are striping the yarn.
