Northport DK Weight 3-Ply Merino Yarn
Northport is River's Edge Fiber Arts traditional DK weight, 3-ply, 100% merino wool yarn. Skeins are 8.8 ounces (500 gr) and 700+ yards.
Northport can easily be substituted for any pattern calling for a DK weight yarn, and most sport and gansey/guernsey patterns. This yarn is excellent for patterns with stitch work such as cables and/or lace.
Hand wash cold, lay flat to dry. No bleach, whiteners or brighteners. Although this is 100% merino wool, it has a fairly high twist and will be difficult to wet felt because of this, however the high twist also means literally no pilling either. (of course this all depends if someone is going to drag it across cement or sandpaper - anything will pill LOL).
Please note: Northport is dyed in batches of 3 skeins. If there is not enough of a dyelot at the time of ordering, and it's a color that is reorderable, a special dyelot will be created for you. There can still be slight variations from one skein to the next within a single dyelot. If your order requires dye-to-order, you will be notified of the delivery delay.
Due to the small unique custom blended dyes and the dye process, please make sure you order enough for your intended project. The Feather and Fan representative sample is approximately 15 inches wide, to give you an idea of the length of the colors, although they vary from one skein to the next.
