Luminous DK (85% wool, 15% silk)
Luminous DK is a 3 ply DK weight yarn. It is 85% Polwarth wool sourced from South America and 15% Tussah silk. All Sincere Sheep yarns are dyed using natural dyes.
This yarn is hand dyed in small batches, so each batch may be a little bit different, and we recommend buying all of the yarn you need for a project at one time. We also suggest alternating skeins when knitting projects.
Luminous DK has a very slight sheen, good elasticity, and good stitch definition. It has a medium drape, so it is a good choice for a wide range of garments.
Some of the Luminous DK colorways use natural indigo in the dyeing process. Here's a note from Sincere Sheep about indigo.
