Collection: Yeti - 8ply 4 fold DK Base (NZ)

Yeti - 8ply 4 fold DK Base (NZ)

Weight: 8ply (woollen spun)

Fibre: 80% non SW Merino / 20% Possum Fur
Meterage:  238m approx / weight 100gm approx
Needle Size: 4mm-5mm                                                                                      

Characteristics: This is a woollen spun yarn with a lot of loft. It is soft and light even as a DK. It has brown undertones due to the possum fur content. Possum fur is a hollow fibre which makes it extremely warm but also very light weight compared to merino. At 238m to the 100g it would be classed as a light DK, however it has such volume that it can be used as an aran without the heaviness.                                                                                

Use: Great for sweaters, shawls, cowls, beanies requiring anything from an 8ply to a 10ply.It will give great stitch definition and being woollen spun, will be particularly good for colour work.

CARE: As this is a NON-SUPERWASH, completely natural yarn, HAND WASHING by soaking in a good wool wash is a must, unless you want your project to felt.

We do recommend all our quality yarns be hand washed by gently soaking, put in a bag and dry spin on medium then lay flat to dry in shade.

  • Smoke Bush (Yeti 8ply)
    Cotinus coggygria is commonly called the ‘Smoke Bush’. They are an attractive shrub grown for the foliage which varies from deep purple to red. Misty pink clouds of flower, emerging in late spring to early summer, waft gracefully above the dramatic rounded foliage and persist for months, followed by spectacular crimson foliage in autumn. The scientific name Cotinus is derived from the Greek word 'cotonos', which means ‘wild olive tree’ and it symbolises purification and cleansing.
