Since we first got Schulana Lambswool back in March, it’s become a much-appreciated yarn here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop. Lightweight, lofty, soft, marled, and tweedy, Lambswool is a yarn that is happy at a wide range of gauges.
We have it in the worsted weight section, because it makes a fine, drapey fabric at 5 stitches to the inch, but it suggests 5.5 sts/inch on the ball band, a DK gauge. I’ve used it successfully in place of a sport weight yarn in my Pomme de Pin cardigan, and Anne’s using it in place of a fingering weight yarn for her Stasis pullover.
The smaller the needle, the sturdier the fabric. When you’re planning a project with Schulana Lambswool, think about how dense or open you’d like the fabric to be and choose your needle size accordingly. Come by the shop to check out our recently-replenished supply of Schulana Lambswool, including one new color. See you at the shop!
