Bartlettyarns are spun on the "woolen system" for a traditional home-spun appearance, softer twist and more bloom than worsted yarns.
Our "Full Measure" consists of:
- full 4 ounces per skein
- four skeins per pound
2 Ply Yarns - 210 Yards/Skein
4 stitches/in. #8 needles
The 2-ply knits to the same gauge as what is commonly known as "4-ply knitting worsted."
Garnet/Midnight-One strand of our Midnight Blue twisted with one strand of our Garnet Heather for a rich tweed look.
Suggestion: Compliment your project by using a skein of Garnet Heather or Midnight Blue for a simple yet wonderful contrast for
collars, cuffs or design work.
Medium Sheep Gray/Natural-One strand of MSG twisted with one strand of Natural to give the look and feel of "rag" wool.
Suggestions: Compliment your project by using a skein of Medium Sheep Gray or Natural for collars, cuffs or design work or perhaps a
more dramatic contrast would be using Dark Sheep Gray or suttle contrast would be using Light Sheep Gray.
