POLLY DK: Approximately 100g/246 yards superwash Polwarth wool. This is a 4-ply DK weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed a light warm beige/champagne and overdyed using twist-resist with black. There is a very small amount of caramel, gold and black speckling. This is a highly variegated colourway and each hank is different though they all share the same colours. Depending on the garment it may flash or pool. Please alternate hanks if using more than one. Different bases are pictured to show variations.
A lot of smoosh with a bit of extra sheen and “crispness” this is a great all-purpose DK base. It is not as soft as Merino, a little more toothy and dense but it wears very well. From shawls and winter accessories to sweaters and baby blankets - take your pick - they all are perfectly suited. I envision it as a cozy hat or scrunchy cowl, baby sweater or big cardigan - you?
While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
