SORBET - Some colors just leap out at you, capture your heart with their beauty and declare bosom-buddy status with your soul. This colorway is one such yarn. It's a drippingly juicy blend of golden mango, ripe papaya, shimmering coral, candy pink, cooling aqua, hints of leaf green and all the beautiful dabbles of unexpected tones where the dyes mingle. Ahhhh. Sweeeeet!
YARN - DEWY DK WEIGHT - 70% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Nylon, 10% Silk
This yarn is sumptuous. Ultra-soft and squishy, and sure to be a favorite. Machine-washable, with a hint of "dewy" glow from the silk and strength and longevity from the nylon. I had the mill spin this custom yarn to these exact specs so you'd have a versatile DK weight yarn not only beautiful to look at but also delightful to work with.
•4-ply : This produces a round, plump yarn, for beautiful, defined stitches!
•DK Weight (stands for Double Knitting): This weight of yarn is thinner than worsted weight and thicker than sport weight.

All types of accessories from head to toe...sweaters are amazzzing... soft, cozy, long-wearing afghans, and loads more. This yarn is ideal for baby items too, due to the softness and ability to be machine-washed.

Gorgeous, Fun Colors
I love, love, love this colorway. It will be part of a baby blanket with coordinating solids. I am deciding between knitting the "Ten Stitch" spiraling pattern and a patchwork of mitered squares.
Beautiful and Soft
I bought two skeins of this color. They are both uniquely beautiful and so soft. I can't wait to get started.
Not as vibrant as photo
I love this yarn base. It's squishy and awesome. I was disappointed when I received this color because the colors look very faded compared to the photos, especially the pink and orange with. They're much more light pastels than they are bright. This is the first time I've had this happen with EFA, so I will continue purchasing this awesome yarn base, but I don't think I will purchase more of this color.
A delightful bargain
I have fallen in love with the "Superwash Dewy DK" line. The fiber is so soft and the colors are always lovely. I was able to make 3 child size hats with just a little left over. I used double crochet on two of the hats and single crochet on the third and the patterning is beautiful and different on each one. This color-way is a mix of bright pastels and just perfect for any upcoming Easter projects one might be considering.
Sorbet on the Dewy DK yarn base has such a festive colors to knit up!! Definitely a happy way to color up someone's day!!
Very soft yarn and gorgeous colors. Love it
