Townsend DK is by far our most popular base. This yarn is a smooth, durable, fiber blend with springy 4ply twist. The high nylon content of this DK weight base makes it preferable for heavy-wear objects like blankets, favorite-garments, and favorite-accessories.

(The above are suggestions. Please swatch responsibly!)
Due to the nature of small-batch hand dyed yarn, skeins may vary even within the same dye lot. We recommend alternating skeins every two rows to minimize pooling.
To care for your finished knits, please use Eucalan No-Rinse wool wash, and lay flat to dry out of direct sunlight.
Each item is one skein unless otherwise stated.
