When Whitney Hayward joined with Twig & Horn to develop a mill-spun yarn, a 2-ply worsted seemed the perfect homage to Stone Wool’s handspun origins. They partnered with two ranches–one in Montana one in Wyoming–for Cormo wool, and a Western mill for fiber processing and spinning.

They worked with the mill on a special method of fiber preparation, one that marries woolen and worsted processes. The result is a unique yarn with woolen spun’s airy loft and worsted’s strength. Springy, lofty and with a substantial hand, Stone Wool Cormo offers crisp stitch definition, with the perfect amount of texture in the knitting. We hope you fall in love.

The yarn has a wonderfully nubby texture, which blooms in the soak. Our Cormo can be knit in a wide range of gauges for a completely different fabric. We recommend needles size US 6 – 7 for hard-wearing knits, up to US 9 – 10 for knits with full drape. The wool is gently scoured–never with harsh chemicals–and as a result there will be occasional flecks of hay and nips in the fiber, which are easy to pick out as knitting, if desired.
