Yarn kit for Cassandra, a striped top in our lovely and sustainable Önling No 2, made of 100% merino wool in Italy. The wool has been carded using a special technique, making the yarn soft, airy, and delicately - absolutely non-scratchy. With Cassandra you get a fantastic and soft top that can be used for many occassions. This yarn kit includes yarn for knitting a top with narrow stripes in two colors, but Cassandra will also look great in one color or with another type of stripes.
