Product Description

Purchase the amount of yarn you’ll need to make your desired sweater and we’ll throw in a digital copy of the pattern for free! You must purchase a minimum of 7 hanks of yarn.

We’ve had an additional amount of yarn made for us, due to popular demand. Supplies are very limited. Choose from the buttery white yarn designed specifically for The Shepherd and The Shearer and sourced from Canada, or choose the heathered brown-gray colored flock yarn from the Juniper Moon Farm 2013 flock, which we had milled to the same specifications as The Shepherd and The Shearer yarn.

Both yarns are hearty yarns designed to stand up to the outdoor elements, rather than for next-to-skin wear and the designs were created with this in mind.

The white yarn is approximately 4oz/113g and 200yrd/183m per hank. The colored flock yarn is approximately 3.5oz/100g and 165yrd/151m per hank. Please take this into consideration when deciding which yarn to purchase. You can find washing instructions here.

Both sweaters are amazing and you may find yourself having difficulty choosing between the two. Here are the details to help you decide which sweater and size to make:

The Shepherd hoodie by Kate Davies

Featuring a sinuous and continuous all over cable, this unisex hoody is cozy, robust, and ideal for the great outdoors. The garment is worked completely seamlessly, all in one piece, and involves minimal finishing.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Finished bust: 30 ¾ (33 ½, 38 ¼, 41 ¼, 45 ½, 49 ¼, 53, 57 ¼)” / 77 (88.5, 85, 97, 105, 115.5, 125, 134.5, 145.5) cm
