One of our Facebook fans commented that CoBaSi was the “Best sock yarn ever plus the color ways r absolutely beautiful!” Of course, we couldn’t agree more :). In fact, the response to the fingering weight has been so tremedous, we have released CoBaSi Plus, a true worsted weight. It has the same fiber content as its lighter cousin – 55% Cotton, 16% Bamboo, 8% Silk, 21% Elastic Nylon, and knits up at 5 stitches to the inch on a US size 7 needle. If you haven’t tried CoBaSi, you’ll find that the cotton and silk provide softness, while the bamboo and elastic nylon provide strength and foregiveness. Perfect for so many uses, and obviously an ideal option for those with wool sensitivities.
Another plus (pardon the pun!) is that has the same color range as original CoBaSi, so you can use the CoBaSi for socks to match a cardigan in CoBaSi Plus, for example. With so many colors, the options are nearly endless!
We have a free pattern available on our site that is the perfect opportunity to try out this yarn. It’s a simple, unisex pullover that has a broad range of sizes (up to 38″ chest!). A great sweater for older/younger siblings!
Check with your local or online Hikoo stockist to see if they have CoBaSi in stock. They can always order the colors you need.
