Superwash Merino DK Multi Ply Yarn


Superwash DK Multi Ply, as the name suggests, has many plys (12 in total) spun together into this popular DK weight yarn. Taking inspiration from a range of yarn from a well known high street brand, the construction creates a alternative effect to our other superwash DK yarn. The advantages of this yarn are that it will not pill and be slightly harder wearing but still with a lovely soft handle from the 21 micron merino. It has been superwash treated so can be machine washed without the yarn felting, therefore a great yarn for an easy-care garment. 

The merino is mulesing free and comes from South America. The yarn is 100% animal fibre and perfect for dyeing. The yarn is bright in colour and would dye up well in subtle light shades or bright and vibrant colours. For bright vibrant colours we recommend using acid or natural dyes.
