Soft gold made in Austria

Not talking about hard metal but about soft wool, this is the marketing slogan of a spinning mill that has been going for more than 100 years. Ferner Wolle used to process the wool of local sheep farmers. Nowadays it sources its raw material in South America.

The wool knitted up in this project contains merino, silk and polyamide. It is perfect for handknitting and wonderfully soft to the touch. My new favourite, sadly not easy to get in the UK.

This pair – alternatively wrist warmers or leg warmers – will come in handy this winter. I can only say a big thank you to Schwendta Mariedl for the knit in record time. And it is going so well with the Fiat 500.
