Cardo Collection

The Cardo Collection designed by the Fairmount Fibers team celebrates the newest yarn from Manos del Uruguay: Cardo! Cardo is a crisp, resilient bulky-weight yarn made of 100% Corriedale wool in a 4-ply construction.

Hornero takes a simple stripe sequence and reverses it halfway up a hat and mittens. The dynamic color play that results is the focal point of the set; shaping is minimal.
