Don’t know about DK? Here’s the low down for ya’ on the down low!
This time of year it can be refreshing to knit with a yarn that is not too heavy, and DK is a popular choice in the summer months.
So here is a total overview of ALL yarns at STASH that has which fall into the territory that we call DK!
Wooly Natural Knitting by DMC
100% superwash merino wool
$11 for 125m/50g
This yarn is super-new and super squishy. We are excited to have this yarn because it has a very similar look and feel to Sirdar Sublime yet it is a superwash yarn – making it infinitely more practical to use and care for as a baby item!
Tosh DK by Madeline Tosh
100% superwash merino wool
$27 for 206m/100g
If you have never gazed in wonder at the beauty of a skein of Tosh then you have never lived. Hyperbole aside, Tosh DK is a springy, perky yarn with great stitch definition and is highly sought after by knitting enthusiasts around the world.
Rylie by Kikoo
50% baby alpaca, 25% linen, 25% mulberry silk
$33 for 250m/100g
This is the kind of yarn that, if you pick it up to hold it, you will not want to put it down. Instead, you will walk around squishing and fondling the skein in absurd and possibly inappropriate ways. Just sayin’. With a fiber content like this, Rylie has a drape and hang unlike any other DK at STASH.
Fine Merino Superwash DK by Diamond Lux
100% fine merino superwash wool
$8 for 125m/50g
Extremely soft and well priced, Diamond Lux has created a beautiful DK superwash in a vibrant range of bejeweled colours. Also good for kiddo items, it knits up neatly and wears well.
Superwash DK by Yarn Ink
100% superwash wool
$28 for 229m/100g
Hand dyed by local artist Yarn Ink, this Superwash DK comes in fantastical and fun colours that tugs at our heartstrings. Highly variegated and clever colourways mean that you will have tough time choosing just one skein.
Abracadabra by Hikoo
35% superwash merino, 50% polypropylene, 15% nylon
$15 for 91m/50g
This yarn changes to PINK when exposed to the sun. Seriously. As if this yarn isn’t crazy enough, it is also available in purple! How does this work? Here at STASH, we assume that it involves combing the mane of a unicorn.
High Twist DK by Rain City Knits
100% superwash Merino
$24 for 211m/100g
Each skein is individually hand-dyed with love in Vancouver, BC and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results! Rain City knits won us over with their bold, bright, retina-burning pallette of colours at Knit City, and we have been big fans ever since.
Eco Andean DK Wool by Estelle
100% eco andean highland wool
$11 for 350m/100g
First, that is some crazy awesome meterage for 100 grams of yarn. Second, as an undyed, eco product the Eco Andean DK is a great choice for any knitter wishing to tread lightly on this earth while knitting like a fiend.
