Cormo is a very crimpy wool that, when combined with a little extra twist creates a beautiful, resilient yarn. In plain English, that translates to "has an amazing amount of stretch."
It has so-o-o much stretch, that the only way to measure it consistently is under tension. So, if you substitute Cormo yarn in other patterns for yarns with less resilience -- use more Cormo!
Knitting with this yarn can be an unexpected pleasure. Try different size needles! Using larger needles than you expect can resulting in sweaters that hug the body with plenty of built-in ease.
*The wool was combed to remove short bits and spun with a hi-twist -- both choices made to complement and highlight the natural characteristics of the fiber.
