Black Dog is an almost-black and charcoal yarn, with splashes of blues and purples throughout. From a distance it may look black, and then it's not until you get up close that you can appreciate the complexity. Anything but "boring black"!
This extra fine merino yarn is as soft as wool gets! It's super soft, squishy, and sproingy. Because of the extra "sproing", it knits up ever-so-slightly heavier than some other DK weight yarns, but you get an extra 15% in the skein.
This is the perfect go-to yarn for accessories like scarves, cowls, hats, baby items, or a special snuggly cardi or jumper. Please contact me if you'd like a larger quantity for an adult sized garment.

Travelknitter yarns are all hand-dyed in East London using only professional-grade acid dyes. The yarns are all carefully rinsed in an unscented wool wash.
We recommend that you treat the yarn kindly by hand-washing in cool water order to keep the colours looking their best.
We do our best to capture the colours as true to life as possible, but please keep in mind that computer monitors vary.
