Spud & Chloë Sweater
A blend of organic cotton and superwash wool, this is pretty much the peanut butter and chocolate of fiber combinations. The softness of cotton and the body of wool. Such a sweater this makes!
We’re loving it for Norah Gaughan’s Liberty Tree Pullover, from Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 9: Revolution. It’s also perfect for the Sea Breeze Cowl-Poncho, from Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 7: Ease.
Specs & Details
45% Organic Cotton
Something wonderful happens when wool meets cotton. The loft and body of wool combines with the cushiness of cotton. The resulting yarn makes the most of each fiber’s personality.
A tree makes for a beautiful cable pattern, ideal for Norah Gaughan’s Liberty Tree Pullover from Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 9: Revolution. The cable’s branches intertwine, then fan out at the edge of the yoke, tipped in bobbles that are not too bobbly. They are just bobbly enough. We love Spud & Chloë Sweater for this timeless garment.
A Note on Yardage Requirements
The cardigan, pullover and capelet in Field Guide No. 9 are all knitted to the same gauge, and all three of the yarns used for those projects knit to that gauge, so it’s the knitter’s choice of yarn, depending on your preference for color and fabric.

Sweater is a delectably wearable yarn choice, especially for … sweaters. But it’s also perfect for the Sea Breeze Cowl-Poncho, Julia Farwell-Clay’s case study in negative and positive ease in the same garment. Choose from soothing, beachy neutrals and vibrant, juicy hues. The pattern can be found in Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 7: Ease.
