Coast by Holst is an all-season superstar. A blend of lambswool & cotton, Coast is supremely versatile.
Use on its own (one strand) for a lightweight garment or accessory (light fingering), or multiple strands for a heavier gauge. It pairs well with other yarns too.
Each fibre takes up the dye differently which results in a naturally tweedy look, although the yarn is smooth.
Softer than Holst Supersoft, we would recommend Coast for babies and sensitive skin.
And like Supersoft, it's a non-superwash which is sold unwashed (i.e. it contains spinning oil) and which “blooms” and softens considerably when washed. We recommend washing and drying your gauge/tension swatch before measuring it!
All wool is from non-mulesing sources. Machine washable on gentle, cold cycles.
Ingredients: 55% Merino Lambswool, 45% Cotton

Per Holst - you can use a washing machine - on a cold delicate wool program, but we (at Tribe) would always recommend hand washing your precious knits.
