This is a double knit DK (8ply) yarn created exclusively for Prosper Yarn. Using 100% New Zealand Merino Cross fibre satisfies the need for something soft, yet more robust than Merino. It is woolen spun - meaning this yarn has loft, and unexpected amounts of squish. I love to watch peoples' faces when they take a skein in their hands!
It is really the perfect yarn for warm winter shawls and the beautiful colourwork sweaters that are so popular. This yarn truly blooms after wet blocking into something very special.
I always recommend when working with hand dyed yarns to alternate skeins.

Needle size is very flexible as lofty yarns (after a wet block) can be happy knit at different gauges.
Poetic, rich colour on sumptuous non-superwash New Zealand yarns: Merino, Corriedale, Merino-Cross, Romney, from the grower to the mill to the dyer - connect your final object back to it’s origin & incorporate the story of the yarn into your own. This is our definition of luxury.
Yarn is the best. It makes the stores who sell it, and the people who buy it happy. It’s sustainable, and supports hard working people in smaller communities trying to slow things down while the world speeds up. All around it’s an amazing, natural product.
Prosper Yarn is small, local, ethical, and socially minded. We use New Zealand grown and milled yarn bases. We do not support mulesing. We use as little fresh water as possible, and fully exhaust our locally mixed professional acid dyes.
Prosper does not use Super Wash yarn bases.
