Merino DK is (as the name implies) a DK weight yarn comprised of 100% Merino superwash wool. It's a smooth, soft yarn with a tighter twist and a round profile; a great all-purpose workhorse yarn that's next-to-the-skin-soft with wonderful stitch definition. The ideal yarn for sweaters, scarves, hats, and more! Machine-washable on gentle cycle. approximately 200m/115g.
