Yarn kit for Texture vest by Helga Isager. 

Texture is a pretty new vest from Helga Isager. It is worked in Isager Alpaca 3 together with Isager Spinni - a surprisingly lovely and slightly rustic quality that is still soft. The vest has fine details with rib edges, where the ribs continue into the rhombus pattern, as well as a beautiful collar.

The kit includes: Isager Alpaca 3 and Merilin in the right amount for the your selected size, and a printed pattern.

Sizes: S/M (M/L).

About sizes: Note the large jump between the 2 sizes. This is because the pattern repeat is 12 sts, and the shape of the vest follows the pattern repeat. Also note that size S/M, with its deep armholes, can be worn by a size L person, if you want a close fitting vest.
For a smaller vest (size XS), knit in only one strand of Alpaca 3, on a 6 mm [US10] needle following the numbers for size S/M. This gives a half chest circumference of 49.5 cm [19½ inches].
For a larger vest (size XXL – XXXL), knit with Isager Tvinni instead of Isager Spinni on a 7 mm [no US equivalent] needle following the number for size M/L. This gives a half chest circumference of 66.5 cm [26¼ inches].

250 (300) g Isager Alpaca 3 col 0

Washing instructions for your knitwear
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
