Mulberino Yak DK
Merino silk and yak make this gorgeous DK yarn soft and sumptious, with a richness of tone and depth of colour.
The latest addition to our catalogue - a DK version of Mulberino 4ply. This yarn is the same blend as Mulberino Yak 4ply, and provides the same rich depth of colour. I have used this yarn on a couple of shawls and jumpers and it is deliciously soft and warm, and the silk gives it an added drape that lends itself beautifully to larger garments. I have created 10 tonal colours - the Cat Stevens Collection. I chose these names because the colours are so deep, rich and tonal.
A few things to bear in mind when using hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. If consistency is important and/or to prevent colour pooling I strongly recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row, particularly on larger projects. If you only have one skein, then you can use both ends at once.
- Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal - think jeans...) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate. I also advise against soaking your finished item as the colours can bleed.
- It is not possible to work directly from a skein/hank. It must be wound into a ball before use, or will get into a terrible tangle. For more information on how to do this there are hundreds of videos on YouTube. Alternatively for a small fee I can do it for you here.
