My Thoughts: Stone Wool Cormo Worsted is dreamy. It's extremely soft with an impressive amount of bounce. It's got a light feel to it because it's sort of woolen spun and sort of worsted spun, but it's strong and is a lot harder to break with my hands than a fully woolen spun yarn like Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. It's so lovely to knit with and makes this amazingly squishy fabric! The colors are matte without any tweedy-ness or color variation, but at least the color I got is so luminous that the matte finish is perfect. Cormo is a favourite breed of mine in general because it combines the incredible softness of Merino with a delightful bouncy lightness, and this yarn expresses that so beautifully! I'm in love!
What I might design with it: A soon as I finished my swatch I immediately cast on a Mill Hill Toque (pictured above), and I expect I'll be needing a sweater as well. It would be such a great oversized pullover or cardigan for snuggling up in!
