Sueno Tonal is a cousin to Hikoo’s Sueno. Tonal skeins have the added feature of introducing shaded tonalities of the base color, giving depth and light to the finished knitted fabric.
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.
This yarn is washable and can be knit into 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.
