We are so excited to introduce you to our newest yarn base, called Dos Tierras, a special blend of Merino and Alpaca.
As you know, all the merino wool we use for our yarns come from Uruguayan sheep, but some of this wool is processed and manufactured in Peru, while another part is still processed and manufactured in our homeland, Uruguay. We created Dos Tierras, which means Two Lands, as homage to these two beautiful countries. 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. The 4-ply structure of the yarn gives a great stitch definition to show off texture, and gives a wonderful drape to your finished garments.
You can find this base in 22 of our kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors, with which you can create the perfect palette to help show off the finished object of your favorite craft.
We have prepared a collection using this yarn, working with 5 designer who came up with these lovely designs. You can find the collection on ravelry here or by clicking on the images. Each pattern is sold individually.
We hope you like our new base much as we do, and we can’t wait to see all the marvelous things you create with it!
