Note: This kit requires US 19 (15 mm) circular needles 32’’ (80 cm). For sleeves you will need to use magic loop method when using size US 19 (15 mm) circular needles 32’’ (80 cm).  To avoid magic loop for sleeves you can use an additional size US 19 (15 mm) 20’’ (50 cm) knitting needles.  

NOTE: A tapestry needle may be helpful when seaming and securing all loose ends.

Care: Dry clean or hand wash cold, lay flat to dry. Please test any washing/drying method on a small swatch to ensure you like the end result. Note that exposing wool to heat (hot water) or agitation (machine washing) will cause it to felt.
