Ashford DK Yarn

100% pure New Zealand wool, grown, prepared and spun in New Zealand

Ashford is very proud of its own DK Yarn. 100% pure New Zealand wool grown on sheep farms around New Zealand and spun in a small boutique mill in Hawkes Bay. This semi worsted yarn is a blend of Corriedale and Perendale, a traditional Double Knit (DK) weight yarn with a three-fold twist (three strands plied together) to give durability and great stitch definition. Ideal for knitting, weaving and knit/felt garments, accessories and projects.
