DK Yarns

DK weight is one of the most popular garment knitting weights, and we have many fiber blends to choose from.  Most are blended either with our springy Merino or British Bluefaced Leicester yarns.  'DK' stands for Double Knit, and refers to an old-fashioned nomenclature when there were not so many yarn weights available.

Our yarns are sold by the kilo. Skeins are packaged ten skeins of 100 grams each to equal a kilo.

    This yarn would work as a weft.

    This yarn is lovely to dye with. It’s a soft roving yarn with undulating thick and thin sections, the thicker sections are spun looser than the thin ones. It results in a soft, gently textured fabric. This yarn takes the dye really well, and Speckles also work well on this yarn.

  • Our Suri Silk cloud DK is a brushed Suri alpaca with a silk core, it's deliciously soft and snuggly.Suri Silk Cloud DK

    90% Baby Suri Alpaca, 10% Silk

    246 yds/100g skein, sold in kilo packs of 10 x 100g skeins

     You know those tiny grey super fluffy kittens? This is what squishing this yarn reminds me of. It's super soft, fluffy and silky, absolutely gorgeous. A sweater or cowl made in this yarn will be divine and something you will never want to take off. There is zero itch factor for this yarn, a super alternative for those that don't get on with Mohair.

    The yarn takes the dye well, speckles spread softly. The skeins may require a little re-fluff depending on your dyeing method once done. I made two swatches for this yarn, one in #7 and one in #8 both work, nicely, the size 7 has a neater quality, but I like the drape of the #8.

    16sts and 28 rows over 4" using #7needles

    15sts and 22rows over 4" using #8 needles

    WPI: 20
