Two Contrast Colors 50 gram skeins EACH, 164 yards / 150 meters
Total yarn in kit: 200 grams, 656 yards / 600 meters
This yarn is NON superwash, which means it can felt. Hand wash gently in cool water with gentle wool wash. Do not agitate or twist/wring out. Squeeze water out, roll in towel to remove excess water, lay flat to dry.

25 stitches & 44 rows = 4" / 10 cm in Woven Stripe Stitch, OR approximately 23 stitches & 35.5 rows = 4 " / 10 cm in Stockinette Stitch 
To best check your gauge, make a swatch using the Woven Stripe Stitch provided in the pattern, but stockinette gauge dimensions are also given using same needle size.
The gauge swatch should be worked flat & measured after blocking. Stitch gauge is more important than row gauge for this pattern, so if you can't get both, use needle size that gives you accurate stitch gauge.
