Hygge—named for the Danish appreciation of cozy moments—is perhaps the snuggliest of Woolfolk’s wonderful yarn family. In this super-chunky yarn, Ultimate Merino—the trademarked wool born of a special partnership with Patagonian ranchers, the Nature Conservatory, and the outdoor retailer Patagonia, Inc—blends effortlessly with superbaby alpaca. Strands of glimmering silk add structure to the lofty fluff of the wool and alpaca for a fiber that’s incredibly soft, warm, and plump.
Former architect, Kristin Ford, learned to knit from her grandmother, Katherine Temple Woolfolk. When she launched her yarn company a few years ago, how could she name it anything else? Kristin’s Danish roots are evident in everything from her design sensibility (“wearable, clean, and minimal”) to her beautiful color sense.
