Organic Rustic Fingering is a scrumptiously soft single-ply fingering yarn from Neighborhood Fiber Company. This 100% GOTS-certified organic and non-superwash Merino wool is custom-made for them in smaller batches. It is an extremely subtle thick and thin yarn where you might find more relaxed areas balanced with curlier ones. As with more visibly thick/thin yarns, these sections even out while knitting and will be set in place during the blocking process. Amazing against the skin, this yarn produces remarkable stitch definition and comes in an extensive range of bold and vibrant shades.
