HØST by Danish company CaMaRose, is a super soft, light and airy, yet full-bodied yarn made of only natural materials, and as far as possible, of organic fibers. HØST is an exclusive yarn, made of 75% organic cotton, 16% recycled wool and 9% cashmere.
The yarn is tube constructed with an organic cotton tube and dyed with a special spraying technique, which gives the yarn a beautiful melange and a unique play of colors. A blend of recycled wool and organic cashmere is blown into the tube. The cashmere turns the yarn into a luxury yarn.
HØST, which translates to "harvest" in English, is available in 8 beautiful colors, and all of the colors are reminiscent to the beautiful colors of fall. It is produced by an Italian spinning mill with consideration for both environment and animal welfare. It can be used for everything from small projects such as mittens, scarfs, hats and vests, to larger projects as sweaters and cardigans. It is a joy to work with.
It is recommended to hand wash the finished work and lay it flat to dry. It is also recommended to knit ribbing edges a little firmer, as the fabric will stretch in a little in use and return to shape after washing.
