  • We have created kits with this gorgeous light, fuzzy organic yarn by Isager. Anne used this yarn for her unisex and kid's version (Badger) of this gorgeous, already iconic, sweater!

    BADGER AND BLOOM is worked from the top down and is a good project for a knitter without much experience with stranded knitting.

    Your Kit Includes:
    Yarn: 2 colours of Isager Eco Soft. See Sizes tab for more info on size options.

    Col A balls
    4 5 6 7
    Col B balls
    3 3 3 3

    Optional PDF pattern delivered to you by email

    Note that these sizes and yarn quantities are for the original "women's" fit of this sweater. Info on yarn requirements for Unisex and Men's Fit can be found here. Kits for the Kid's Badger Sweaters are here.

    You will also need:
    Double-pointed needles: 4.5mm (or circular needle for magic looping)
    Circular needles: 4.5mm, 5mm and 6mm, 40, 60 and 80cm
    Optional: A 4.5 mm straight needle for the optional Italian cast-on
    Or sizes needed to achieve pattern gauge.
    Stitch Marker
    Tapestry needle for darning your ends

    About The Yarn:

    This brand new yarn by Isager is a light, fuzzy blend of alpaca and Organic Pima Cotton.

    Constructed a bit like our belovedAmelie by Illimani, Eco Soft also features a tube of yarn (this time in cotton instead of silk) with alpaca fibres blown through it.

    The result is airiness, copious halo (fuzz/fluff) and the ability to use this yarn in place of a pattern that would otherwise require you to use yarn x held together with silk-mohair.

    If you want a super luxurious and more colourful version, check out our Artyarns kits for this sweater too!

    Renowned for classic yarns made from natural fibres, well suited for knitting, crochet, weaving and embroidery.

    All the wool qualities are ideal for felting and for dyeing with plant dyes.

    It is important to us that our yarns are produced with the greatest amount of care taken to both animals and humans.


    Carefully created so the colours work well together both within and across the qualities. We rarely change the colours, as the range primarily consists of BASIC COLOURS, amongst which contemporary colours can always be found.

    The colours and qualities of our finer yarns can be mixed to create unique pieces.

    As a rule, single ply, densely spun yarns should not be used individually for working in the round, as they may pull the finished work. When worked together with other qualities this problem is avoided.
