Tobin Sweater Bundle: Teal Boiled Wool Blend Kit
Stay warm and toasty in a cozy Tobin Sweater! Make a Tobin in this vibrant teal boiled wool blend for a great layering piece all season long. This boucle-textured boiled wool blend knit fabric is lighter than traditional wool and drapes beautifully, making for an ideal sweater you can wear all year. What's more, it's easier to handle and sew than traditional wool or highly stretchy fabrics, and is a great choice for sewists who want to build confidence sewing knits.
The kit contains:
- 2 7/8 yards (2.6 m) of boiled wool blend (60% viscose, 40% wool) in teal
You have the option of purchasing the kit with the paper pattern, with the PDF pattern (which will be delivered directly to your email inbox) or just the fabric alone.
You will also need needles and thread, which are not included in this kit.
Dry clean preferable; if you want to hand wash, test a sample first.
I ordered the kit and made the cowl neck view but did not do the high low hem, instead evening it out. The sweater turned out really well and was easy to sew. Unfortunately I will not be able to wear it as I have apparently developed an allergy to wool in my old age. I am gifting it to my sister in law who is thrilled with it. She claims to be sorry about my allergy, but I can't see her sorrow through her smiles.
