Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% of fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru, a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful is created. This four-ply yarn has great stitch definition and drape, plus the kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colours create a perfect palette to help show off your stitch work.
Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork, and textured stitches.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
