A good DK yarn needs purpose and structure, and Beacons has that in abundance. A blend of Polwarth, Romney and Hebridean. This deliciously round 3-fold, worsted spun yarn shows clear stitch definition and loves texture and cabled stitches, and is incredibly soft.
The Polwarth comes from Dunbar Island, part of the Falkland Islands, famed for the snow white superfine fleece. These sheep produce a long, smooth fibre that has excellent stitch definition and soaks up dye like a sponge. Adding some depth and texture to the Polwarth is some long and lustrous Romney and stunningly rich Hebridean in Cinder, the grey base.
