Tasty : Tasty is luxury, strength and all-around utility all in one delightful yarn! It is a smooth and butter-soft yarn with great bounce. This yarn is lightweight but quite durable, making it an excellent choice for socks when knit at 8 or 9 stitches per inch. The cashmere lends a subtle halo to the yarn, which makes Tasty a wonderful choice for elegant shawls or scarves. Tasty would make a fabulous, treasured garment worn next to your skin, so you can touch it all day. Or maybe just keep a skein nearby for fondling. You will enjoy working with Tasty almost as much as you’ll enjoy wearing it.


The Tasty base is available as an Evolution, as a Self-Striping and as Semi-Solid shades designed to coordinate with each colorway.
