Holst Garn Coast is a 2-ply yarn made of 55% merino lambswool and 45% cotton, available in 88 different shades.

Due to its high cotton content, this yarn is perfect both for Mediterranean winter and spring and fall garments. This thin and fresh yarn is perfect for all publics, newborns, and people with sensitive skin included.

Hols Garn Coast is a thin yarn that can be qualified as light fingering with 350 meters in 50-gram skeins. This yarn is perfect for knitting with one thread at needles 2.5 - 3 mm or two threads at needles 4 - 4.5 mm.

Holst Garn Coast 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 Coast 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 it 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.    

You can knit this rustic yarn with one thread with 2.5 - 3 mm needles or with two threads with 4 - 4.5 mm needles.

Holst Garn Coast wool comes from mulesing-free farms of New Zealand and Argentina.

To knit a long-sleeved sweater in size L, you will need 4 skeins of Holst Garn Coast. 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 fundamental. The pattern Whippet by ANKESTRiCK has been designed with this yarn. Another design that looks wonderful with Holst Garn Coast is Ooh la la by Isabell Kraemer; try it in its short sleeve version with this blend of wool and cotton for the summer!

Holst Garn Coast 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.
