This is a tiny preview of my latest design for Tilli Tomas. The sweater is knitted in Aspen and Mogul - Tilli Tomas' newest yarns made from 100% pure Australian Merino wool. I used 4.5mm (US 7) knitting needles and the gauge was 5 sts/6 rows = 1".
This is the softest wool I've ever seen. Its single ply, and I was able to work very quickly on my Addi Turbos. For the Aspen (100% wool), the put up is 260 yds per 100 gms. For the Mogul (100% wool strung embellished with glass beads), the put up is 260 yds per 100 gms.
The sweater is en route to a photo shoot scheduled for Monday. Photos, pattern and kit to follow soon. Please check back soon.
