A three layered (3-ply) slice of delicious woolly wonder. As heavenly as the perfect light and airy sponge cake that is just firm enough. I knew as soon as I held it in my hands that I wanted to add this in as one of our quintessential garment base yarns. Our DK version is still lofty but a little fine with more drape.
21.5 micron Merino spun just right! The stitch definition is just stunning. Our good friend and yarn gauge test knit goddess is head over heels in love with CAKE and is planning all sorts of wonderful sweaters of this 3-ply beauty!
“These yarns are SOOOOO yummy! Might be my ultimate sweater yarn!” Karen Alfke
Colorway shown: Spicy Plum
Content: 100% Merino
Length: 765 yds / 704 m
Weight: 9 oz / 255 g
Gauge: 21 - 23 stitches to 4 inches (10.6 cm) on size 4 - 6 (3.5 - 4.0 mm) needles
Here are Karen's in-depth gauge specs:
US5 (3.75mm) blocked = 22 or 21.5 x 33
Perky, yet soft! Snaps back and doesn't feel rigid.
US6 (4mm) blocked = 22 or 21.5 x 33
Again… interesting. Soft with a little more drape but still good integrity
