In honour of Bernie Sanders iconic Inauguration gloves we have created a kit for the Feel The Bern Sweater by the inimitable Boyland Knitworks.
For this classic yoked sweater we have chosen a fabulously soft ‘wooly’ wool that works beautifully for colourwork. The yarn is called ‘Highland’ and is hand-dyed here in Bath by DyeBath Yarns.
Highland is a soft and solid wool from the Peruvian Highlands. Hand-dyed in small batches this yarn works up a treat and provides quirky semi-solids for you to enjoy.
Each kit contains the yarn for the sweater but there is the option to buy extra skeins if you wish to customise sleeves or body (or both!). We will ensure the extra skeins are all from the same dyebatch if they are ordered together but can’t guarantee dyelot matching if ordered separately.
The pattern is free via http://www.boylandknitworks.com
We will donate £5 for every kit sold to age UK In Bath. You can read about some of the amazing work they do here http://www.ageuk.org.uk/bathandnortheastsomerset/
