  • Ashlawn is a sleeper of a yarn. I originally bought it just because I love the idea that it's local, but once we started knitting with it, we were all in head over heels for it. Produced by Cestari, a small mill in Staunton, Virginia, Ashlawn is a beautiful heathered blend of 75% Virginia Cotton and 25% Virginia Targhee Merino. It has a truly wonderful hand and great stitch definition. Cotton can be hard to knit, but thanks to that little bit of wool, Ashlawn is a delight to use. It's a perfectly balanced three-ply yarn, so the stitches are nice and even without a hint of a bias.

    Most of the colorways are heathered, and one, Spring Meadow, is subtly marled for a beautiful effect. We are loving Ashlawn for all-season sweaters and accessories. Ideal for folks who are sensitive to wool, although, if you have an anaphalactic shock type wool allergy, it might not be for you. For everyone else, this is a yarn you can love and feel good knowing you're supporting a small independent mill that cares about its sheep and the industry.

    Machine wash cold gentle, or hand wash. Dry flat. Do not dryclean - you want to retain the natural lanolin in the wool
