Tides by  Holst Garn is a 2 ply yarn made of 70% pure new wool and 30% silk.

Holst Garn Tides is a thin rustic yarn that we can classify as light fingering with 287 meters in 50 grams. You will find small irregularities along the thread, speckles of silk in fact, that will give a tweed effect to your projects.

Holst Garn Tides is a perfect soft rustic yarn both for knitting and crochet projects. It is available in 36 different shades.

If you knit this yarn with just one thread, the recommended needle size is 3-3.5mm. If you prefer to work this yarn with 2 threads, you can knit with 4-4.5mm knitting needles.

This yarn comes unwashed, which means that it still contains a little spinning oil. That makes that the perception of this yarn changes completely after its first wash: when the oil is removed, this wool relaxes, blooms, and offers a more fluffy and soft fabric that fills all the little holes in the knit.

For this reason, more than never, it is essential that when you are going to knit a project with Holst Garn Tides you make a tension swatch before. Wash it and let it dry before form an opinion or measure your stitches. You will notice how your project changes once blocked, which will give you lots of joys but will also bring surprises if you have not made a tension swatch nor treated as you will do with your finished sweater.

Holst Garn is a Danish brand run by Helle Holst, a die-hard knitter who wanted more options for her knitting projects. Helle wanted to be able to create her own color combinations, having a diverse palette of colors where to choose, and, above all, she wanted to play with all these colors without having to make a huge inversion in her (and your) sweaters.  Thus Holst Garn was born, a company that offers great quality yarns, with a wide range of colors and with prices that will be a joy for your pocket.    

Holst Garn Tides wool comes from mulesing-free farms of Australia and New Zealand.

To knit a long-sleeved sweater in size L, you will need 6 skeins of Holst Garn Tides. Remember that this is just an indication and that your own tension, chosen pattern, kind of knitting stitch... may modify the quantity. Make a tension swatch and remember that for this yarn, that is something very important. Patterns like Poet by Sari Nordlund, Hitofude Cardigan by Hiroko Fukatsu, or Reagan by Isabell Kraemer look great with this yarn.

Holst Garn Tides is a yarn that can be machine washed in a delicate program for wool, with cold water. Anyway, we suggest always hand wash the garments in which you put so many hours of knitting dedication. 

Remember that Holst Garn yarns contain a bit of spinning oil and an excess dye that will disappear with the first wash.
