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.
Tanager is a more-than-generous scarf with the simplest possible intarsia (no charts, no bobbins!). The colorblock structure is an open canvas for your own palette of 5 colors -- stay modernist like the one shown, or go tonal, romantic, upbeat … the choice is yours.
