Holst Garn is a family business run by Helle Holst in Denmark. She has a passion for wool and after finding a gap in the market she created a wonderful selection of yarns, Coast being one of the standouts. Helle sources her fibres all over the world and produces unique blends. The use of merino lambswool has created a super soft fine yarn that can been worn next to the skin even on new-borns.
Sometimes you want a garment that's warm but not heavy. Jared Flood and the team at Brooklyn Tweed have created just this. Loft is different to your average fingering wool. It has an artisan style, feather light weight and rustic feel. Made from Targhee-Columbia sheep wool, with beautiful crimp and spring, its woollen-spun 2-ply construction make it delicate, light and bouncy. It seems to capture pillows of air within the strands.
