Lively woolen spun two-ply yarn is a delight to work with. Tukuwool DK is a genuine workhorse yarn for sweaters and accessories such as mittens and hats.
Tukuwool DK is at its best in colorwork as well as structures such as cables. The color chart includes heathered deep and vibrant colors that tempt you to mix and play with. After wet blocking the stitches relax and the fabric softens and evens.
The wool for Tukuwool DK comes from Finnish sheep farms that grow Finnsheep and Finnsheep/Texel breeds. Woolen spun Finnsheep wool is warm and airy, soft and rustic. DK stands for Double Knitting weight, approximately 22 sts per 10 cm on 4mm needles. You may go with needles 3.75-4.5 and the gauge will be between 18-22 sts. Depending on your project you may choose Tukuwool DK even though the pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn. Swatching is the best method to find out if the yarn suits the pattern.
