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 and the amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors of their yarns are combined you have the perfect palette to help show off your stitch work. "Dos Tierras" is esspecially well suited for accessories and hand-wash-friendly garment, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork and textured stitches.
