The Cardo Collection designed by the Fairmount Fibers team celebrates the newest yarn from Manos del Uruguay: Cardo! Cardo is a crisp, resilient bulky-weight yarn made of 100% Corriedale wool in a 4-ply construction.
The Seriema cowl overlays vertical ribs on a background of garter-ridge stripes. The simple slip-stitch technique means working only one color per round. Fold the upper edge inward so it fits under your chin, or leave it upright so you can tuck your nose inside!
