This yarn, named after the concentric circles of gradient color, is fun and very special. Concentric by HiKoo is new to Graywood Designs for 2018. We are excited to be sharing it with you as a premium offering among the selected yarns on our website.
Concentric comes in 200 gram “cakes,” ready for knitting. The working yarn is made up of four 2-ply strands that are barely twisted. It is this lack of twist in addition to the the fiber (Concentric is 100% baby alpaca) that gives the yarn a soft, gentle feel.
Use Concentric for shawls, cowls, and scarves. Think lace patterns and openwork. Your knitting will be warm and elegant.
