Size guide


Suggested yarn

The vest is knitted using DK weight yarn, i.e. a skein or ball of 100 g corresponds to around 200-300 m (220-330 yds).

The yarn used to make the model is Bouclelaine’s Roussin-Alpaga DK weight, made from 80% Roussin de la Hague and 20% Alpaca. It’s a yarn made in a short circuit, allowing the fleeces from Brittany and other French departments to be valued.
