Arthur DK (Wensleydale)

£21.00

Arthur DK is a smooth, crisp yarn spun from the finest British Wensleydale.  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.

Orders shipped between 1 and 3 working days, (including backorders).

Description

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.
