Finch is a little sprite, a fingering weight yarn with spark. Its four neatly-twisted plies give the yarn a smooth, tailored finish that’s sturdy and hardwearing. It’s soft to the touch, drapey and perfectly balanced for even stockinette stitch fabric. It’s supreme in delicately-articulated texture stitches, cables and lace patterns. And its well-defined structure makes it great for pretty Fair Isle patterns, too.
We like it at 6-7 stitches per inch on size US 3 and 4 needles [3.25 and 3.5mm]. Drop down to US 2s [2.75mm] when you want a tight fabric. Loosen it up on US 5s [3.75mm] when you want drape and swing.
