October 2021 Color of the Month on Fortitude DK from Forbidden Fiber Co. is a sturdy yarn that can handle a wide variety of projects. It has four plies of merino which ensure round, well-defined stitches. Go ahead and make that sweater: Merino fiber means next-to-skin softness while Fortitude’s ply structure makes for a sturdy yarn that’ll hold whatever you throw at it -- cables, lace, or good old knits and purls.
This colorway is something new from Forbidden Fiber Co. They will be release a new color each month to the yarn shops who sell their yarns. We took special orders and had some extras after these were filled.
