This 100% Wool Persian Yarn is ideal for needlepoint. The plies can easily be separated to cover the different sizes of canvas. One strand of the three ply yarn will nicely cover a 13-count canvas.
Although this product is designed expressly for needlepoint, it is also a wonderful knitting yarn. It gauges at 3 ½ stitches per inch on size 10 needles. There are approximately 164 yards in the four ounce skein. We also sell each of our colors in 8 yard hanks.
