POLLY DK: Approximately 100g/246 yards superwash Polwarth wool. This is a 4-ply DK weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed first with a wash of mottled green with a bit of green speckling then brown with a bit of brown speckling and a final wash of black. Grey-green with brown undertones. A little speckling with caramel, rust and mustard was added at the end. They are tonal and slightly variegated and should be alternated if more than one is used. Note that multiple 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.
