About Number 2
The length varies per colour, since each blend of fibers has different properties.
Beautifully woollen spun into a light and airy four ply weight, Number 2 is a warm workhorse yarn. Garthenor uses Number 2 for their 'built to last' hand knitted socks. Their gentle twist and bouncy fibres trap plenty of air to create a warm fabric. The heathered depth of colour is achieved by blending up to 8 different shades of raw fleece before scouring.
Some of these Number 2 yarns are particularly delicately spun, so a bit more care is needed whilst working them.
How many skeins do I need?
Please note that Number 2 is undyed, the colours of natural wool are blended to create different shades. Shades may vary from spinlot to spinlot. Always make sure you have enough yarn for your project.
