Sueno by HiKoo



Made in Peru, Sueno is a blend of soft superwash merino and bamboo, and is made with strength and wearability in mind. The perfect amount of spring (some knitters call this “bounce”) makes knitting with it a pleasure, and allows for a variety of suitable gauges. Try this yarn at a sock gauge of 8 stitches per inch; or use it at sweater gauge of 5 stitches per inch. The roundness and bounce will allow versatility in gauge and needle size.

Available in a wide range of lustrous solids, this washable yarn is perfect for socks, sweaters, accessories, kids garments, and hard-wearing garments that will last a lifetime.

Sueno (pronounced “Swen-Yo”) means “dream” in Spanish, and that alone gives a big clue as to the pleasure of knitting with this yarn.
