Mid-toned royal blue.

Arthur DK is a smooth, crisp yarn spun from the finest British Wensleydale. It has a rounded, 3-ply construction and is a good all-round, general purpose DK (double knit) yarn. The long staple length allows for a softer spin on the yarn and gives it a strong resistance against pilling, and the superb lustre gives colours an unparalleled inner glow. Each 100 gram hank is approximately 230 metres of yarn, and is spun in Devon.

Mid-toned royal blue hand-dyed Wensleydale yarn

Arthur DK is a smooth, crisp yarn spun from the finest British Wensleydale. It has a rounded, 3-ply construction and is a good all-round, general purpose DK (double knit) yarn. Wensleydale wool is the finest and most valuable lustre longwool in the world, having commanded the highest price in the British Wool Marketing Board’s Wool Schedule over recent years. The long staple length allows for a softer spin on the yarn and gives it a strong resistance against pilling, and the superb lustre gives colours an unparalleled inner glow.

Each 100 gram hank is approximately 230 metres of yarn, and is spun in Devon. I would recommend a hand-wash with gentle detergent in hand-hot water in order to keep the colours looking their best. The yarn has been hand-dyed in a smoke-free and pet-friendly home, but no pets have had access to the fibre. Please be aware that, while I make every attempt to provide you with accurate photographs, the colours in them may vary from monitor to monitor.

    Arthur DK is hands down the most lustrous yarn I’ve ever worked with. It has a metallic and yet warm quality, as though the fibres are gently glowing from within. As it’s Wensleydale, the scarf I made from it has incredible stitch definition and has worn like iron- three years old and barely a pill in sight. However, it can be a little prickly if I sweat (TMI!), so if you have very sensitive skin it may not be the right yarn for you.
