The transition from deep black to bright white is softened with in-between shades of gray in the Heritage cardigan. Though gray is also used as a foreground color in the colorwork band, it’s a pale enough gray to read as part of the pattern, rather than as part of the background. Undyed yarns from heirloom sheep breeds knit up into a soft, surprisingly lightweight fabric.
