This Tähkä Cardigan is as beautiful as the golden August fields, full of ripe grain. Tähkä means grain cob in Finnish and as the crops are ready for harvesting, so is this yarn for knitting. The yarn is the finest, bulkiest and softest yarn made of organic Finnsheep wool, and it originates from Mikkola, Örnberg and Rauhala organic farms. The wool has been washed lightly and spun at Virrat, in Finland, with decades of expertise.
You could live in this cardigan all autumn, and it as a shield in the frozen winter temperatures and wrap yourself in it up in the cool spring weather. As a knitting project it is perfect for the beginners that have never knitted anything larger than a mitten. Big needles guarantee that you will finish this project.
