Crystal Palace Yarns
free knitting pattern

Nubbles is CPY's new highly textured, 90% wool yarn that lends itself to many combinations. Iceland is especially nice to pair with Nubbles and the finished garment or project is very soft.

See other color combinations for Nubbles + Iceland here (as knit into our shawl pattern).
