Sparrow is a plain little yarn, beautiful in its simplicity. Its clean, smooth hand is crisp as you knit it. But after washing and wearing, it becomes handkerchief soft.
Knit Sparrow on a variety of needle sizes—we’ve used needles from size US 2 to size 6 [2.75 to 4mm] —depending on the drape and feel you want in your project. The yarn is a natural in lace patterns, carving out the yarn overs, but it’s fluid, too, in simple stockinette. It’s great in tanks, shawls, and breezy cardigans, and lovely as can be in bags, wash cloths and other home accessories.
