Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% of our fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru we have created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. And when we combine the good stitch definition and drape of this four ply yarn with our amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors you have the perfect palette to help show off your stitch work.
Great for: Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork, and textured stitches.

Hand-dyed yarns naturally have some color variations from skein to skein. We'll do our best to choose the best matching skeins for your order.
To get the best results we suggest that you make sure to purchase enough yarn for your entire project & alternate skeins by knitting two rows from one skein, then two rows from another skein. This will help to blend any color differences.
Please contact us with any questions about working with hand-dyed yarns or if you would like to place a special order for more yarn than is currently available.
