-- SIZING --
Beetlesuit is written for 9 sizes, with the sweater ranging from 35.5-71 in/90-180.5 cm finished bust. It is meant to have a loose fit, with 3-6 in/7.5-15 cm positive ease at the bust recommended. Sample shows 3.5 in/9 cm positive ease at the bust. The full schematic is included in the listing photos. Sizes are noted as 1 (2, 3, 4, 5) [6, 7, 8, 9].
-- YOU HAVE TWO OPTIONS --
The black used in the sample is Cumulus + Cocoon (lace weight held double). All other colors are Twig (single-ply fingering weight). If you are sensitive to mohair or yak, or would simply prefer to use the single-ply merino for the black, select the size option with TWIG in the name. Note, this only applies to the BLACK colorway.
The sample was knit in the Wedding Suit set using the Cumulus + Cocoon combo, and the swatches show Twig. Yarn base info below.

Twig - single-ply fingering weight, 100% Superwash Merino, 400 yds/366 m per 100-gram skein

Please Note: Our yarn is hand-dyed in very small batches, so each skein (while using the same dye recipe, and even within the same dye bath) will be slightly unique due to the nature of the dyeing process. It is always recommended to alternate skeins for projects requiring more than 1 skein of a specific colorway. In addition, colors may vary from screen-to-screen and in person, but we do our best to accurately display each colorway. We are a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
A slight amount of bleeding in the first washes is normal, especially for vibrant and very saturated or speckled colorways. All of our colorways are left to set for several hours or overnight until the dye has exhausted, then rinsed and washed in unscented wool wash. If there is excessive bleeding, please contact us immediately so we can address and rectify the situation.
