The sister to Woodland Fingering, Woodland DK has an extra ply, making it more sturdy and rounded. It has excellent definition for cabled patterns and durability for sweaters. This fabulous fibre has a fascinated story as well; in addition to being naturally dyed in Toronto, the pure Merino wool is certified organic (GOTS), sourced from muesling free farms in New Zealand, unbleached, and milled in the GTA. Seriously, I did a little dance when I first discovered it, and I now think of it as an absolute staple.
Wash before working with this yarn to remove oils from spinning and bring out it's lovely bloom and bounce.
**This weight of Woodland yarn was formerly called Sport. After some careful re-calculations, it turns out to be DK weight! It's quite on the cusp between the two, so changing needle size should be able to achieve many sport or DK gauges.**
