Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% of their fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru, Malabrigo has created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. And when the good stitch definition and drape of this four ply yarn is combined with their amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors, you have the perfect palette to help show off your stitch work.
Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork, and textured stitches.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. In the tagged (*) colors, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
Skeins are hand dyed in small batches of 5 so color variance is normal (even from skein to skein) based on dye lot and monitor/device settings. May not appear exactly as shown.
