Spun and dyed in Finland from 100 % Finnish wool. 251 yards per skein.
Lively woolen spun two-ply yarn is a delight to work with. Tukuwool DK is a genuine workhorse yarn for sweaters and accessories such as mittens and hats.
Tukuwool DK is at its best in colorwork as well as structures such as cables.
The wool for Tukuwool DK comes from Finnish sheep farms that grow Finnsheep and Finnsheep/Texel breeds. Woolen spun Finnsheep wool is warm and airy, soft and rustic.
DK stands for Double Knitting weight, approximately 22 sts per 10 cm on 4mm needles.
You may go with needles 3.75-4.5mm and the gauge will be between 18-22 sts.
Depending on your project you may choose Tukuwool DK even though the pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn.
Swatching is the best method to find out if the yarn suits the pattern.
Care: Tukuwool DK is non-superwash treated - wash gently by hand in cold water and lay flat to dry.
May be felted in the washing machine.
