We love this yarn. The fiber is the tenderest merino, so fine and soft that it has been mistaken for cashmere, spun to a DK weight that has some heft. And like all Woolfolk yarns, the palette is a dream: 17 sophisticated, luminous shades.
Tov DK is Joji Locatelli’s choice for the Cuatro Wrap in Field Guide No. 22: Grace. Click through the gallery to have a look at this modular-knit wonder. Pick four colors as you like, or go with one of our yarn bundles for this project, right here.
Specs & Details
Kristin Ford, the founder of Woolfolk, has made it her business to create exquisite yarns that come from sheep who are raised with care and attention both to the sheep and the land on which they live.
Tov is Ultimate Merino®, a fiber grown from merino sheep at the southernmost tip of South America. Ultimate Merino® doesn’t happen by chance, but by the innovative efforts of farmers to produce the very best wool fiber while being land stewards of the Patagonian grasslands.
The wool for Tov comes from an Argentinian cooperative of farmers, Ovis 21, that focuses on land preservation, restoring the grasslands through the use of sheep. The farmers have learned to raise their sheep in harmony with the land—moving the herd from pasture to pasture to avoid overgrazing.
Joji Locatelli’s Cuatro Wrap calls for two skeins each of four colors. Knit in four separate triangles, in easy textured stripes, it’s the ultimate portable knit and a stunning wear-it-everywhere accessory.
