I designed this sweater to use several yarns. In mine i used a "souvineer' yarn I bought in Jasper Canada because the deep green and gray looked like the Evergreen covered mountains. I wasnt sure I had enough so I used one of my handspuns for the collar and cuffs. With this in mind you could purchase enough of my handspun for the accents and use your own favorite yarns for the rest of the sweater. The accent yardage is approximately 160 yards and the main color 700 yards for a size 12 adult.
