Camel Hair

This is made from 100% Camel Hair from COLOURMART UK.

I used 2 x 2/15's. The design is my own and I used the Brother Garter Carriage. The sweater has been washed and tumble dried on hot. It has set in sleeves and fully fashioned shaping. It is 62 cm wide and 68cm long. It weighs 590 gms after washing.

I tried using one strand on my fine gauge machine but it wasn't satisfactory. It works much better with two strands which equals 2/7.5.

There is much hand manipulation here, cabling every 4 rows.
