This listing is for 1 skein.
100% Peruvian Highland wool-springy but sturdy. 27 micron
Non superwash, botanically dyed
Perfect for sweaters, accessories, and color work.
4 ply. 123 yd/50g (1.75 oz)
**IMPORTANT NOTE** Some of the more recently dyed skeins are 100 g (3.5 oz). I thought I would switch over to this size then decided not to. Their yardage is 246yds/100g (3.5 oz). The price is also doubled, to $21.00
The wool for Highland DK comes from small flocks in the vast and hard environment of the Peruvian Highlands, and is milled in the Highlands as well. Visit www.chesterwool.com/new-blog to learn more about how purchasing this yarn supports small Peruvian farmers.
Consider mixing and matching Highland DK with BFL DK and Donegal Tweed DK as they are all DK weight and have the same yardage. Mixing and matching adds textural interest and extends your color choices!
Minor bleeding may occur on first wash. Each skein is unique, purchase multi-skein projects together & alternate rows. Colors are shown as accurately as possible but Monitors will vary.
Dyes used include Indigo, Goldenrod, Cochineal, Madder, Black Walnut, and others.

You can prolong the life of all textiles and colors by washing by hand in cool water and avoiding exposure to strong, direct, prolonged light. For yarn, air drying on a flat surface will prevent stretching and sagging. A neutral wool wash is recommended. I currently use non scented Eucalan or Orvus.
