Stout is a new yarn for the Fall 2015 line up from Borgo de Pazzi, and we LOVE it. And from everything that local yarn stores coast to coast have said about it so far… you will too! This yarn is 100% organic wool, packaged in a HUGE 200 gram skein, with 300 meters per hank. This means that one skein should be more than enough for a sufficiently sized scarf for most anyone on your list.

The colours are of the natural “sheepy” variety, and have a really long striping pattern that can take you all the way from one end of a scarf, to the other. And while the colour range is not vast, it is classic. And as we all know… classic never goes out of style.

This scarf pictured below demonstrates the fantastic long striping effect of this yarn. What’s nice about this long colour pattern is that it doesn’t interfere with any stitch pattern! So go ahead and cast on those cables with some Stout!

We promise- it will be stunning.
