Cone: Frangipani 5-Ply Guernsey Wool

Regular price $58.00

A traditional 5-ply gansey yarn available in 1.16 lb (500gr) cones from Frangipani. The traditional gansey tension is achieved with 2.25 or 2.5 mm needles, but the yarn also works well with larger needles to give a more forgiving fabric.

“For knitting traditional ganseys you will be knitting to a gauge of 32 stitches and 36 rows of 4 inches; this is usually achieved on size 2.25mm (US size 1) needles but everyone is different so experiment to find what is most comfortable for you.”
