Three-ply Chickadee is a well-rounded, bouncy and elastic sport weight yarn. Although smooth, tidy and refined in the skein, it makes a fabric with even stitches, drape, softness and a hint of halo to smooth things out. Use this yarn when you want etched textures, clean-cut cables and crisp colorwork patterns. Try it in breezy cardigans when you want fluid drape, or in cozy accessories that are comfortable next to your skin.
Chickadee knits up on size US 3 to 7 needles [3.25 to 4.5mm], depending on the gauge you’re looking for. It’s the perfect all-around sport-weight yarn.
