How to choose yarn?

The yarn used for the sample here is Third Vault Yarns Companion 4ply. A very smooth, tightly spun yarn, that has good stretch and bounce, whilst maintaining decent drape. A good substitute would be a  wool that has much the same properties, rougher wools are not recommended if the shawl will be worn next to the skin, though preference may vary. Non-wool blends of or 100% non wool yarn would work for the shawls if the yarn can be blocked. 

Properties & style to focus on for yarn choices

  • Smooth yarn with good stitch definition.
  • Can be blocked.
  • Solids, Semisolids, tonally variegated, speckles, or lightly variegated yarns.
