As soon as I saw this new sweater by Andrea Mowry I knew it would have been the perfect match for Lana Peruviana Sport, it is a wooly yarn with a rustic yet soft character, it will hold its shape and resist nicely to time and wear, plus its tight round 3ply will have great stitch definition.
This kit include all the yarn needed to complete the sweater but doesn't include a copy of the pattern which you need to but separately from Ravelry.
Pattern calls for 21.5 stitches and 39 rows in 10 cm with 3.75 mm needles.
I got a gauge of 22 stitches and 37 rows in 10 cm with 3.75 mm needles.

Highland wool comes from a crossbreed sheep that lives in the Peruvian highlands at over 2,000m above sea level. These crossbreed animals derive from Corriedales and Merinos, and the environment in which they live allow them to produce a wool that is dry, crimpy and durable. At 27 micron the wool is not quite as soft as merino, but it is stronger than merino, it is also warm, and it has good elasticity.
Hand wash in cool water. Lay flat to dry.
Colors are hand dyed with professional acid dyes. Each hand dyed batch is quite unique, so please buy enough yarn to complete your project.
I try hard to represent each colorway as I see it IRL, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor, also light affect what you see.
