Cardo is a chunky 4 plies yarn made of 100% non superwash Uruguayan Corriedale wool.

We love this wool  for its long and strong staple that  has a lot of shine and crimp, which gives the yarn excellent stitch definition and a knitted fabric that will retain its shape very well.

Cardo is the perfect sweater yarn, it knits fast and will show off cables and fancy stitches.   We also love it for home goods like pillows and blankets.
