YARN - DEWY DK WEIGHT - 70% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Nylon, 10% Silk
This color is highly saturated. It is possible that you may experience color transfer when working with this color.
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. It's incredibly versatile and can knitted or crocheted into an endless number of wonderful items. 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.

Beautiful yarn to work with and absolutely love the colour
I love the Dewy DK yarn, it is a pleasure to work with! The yarn is easy to frog if needed and it offers great stitch definition. The Timekeeper color is a bit darker than it appears on my screen, more like a navy blue, with some lighter specks throughout.
This colorway has so much depth and dimension. The base is a deep, moody navy (like a storm cloud over the Atlantic). But there are shifts of greyed-navy and even small hints of a brighter blue, as if the sun was reminding you it’s still there somewhere far past the storm. I received 6 skeins, and although hand-dyed yarn is ALWAYS variant, the skeins all shift well…a couple just have a tinge more of the grey shift. I’m really looking forward to working this up! Definitely doesn’t need an intricate pattern; the color play will do all the the heavy lifting!
