Dos Tierras (Two Lands) is a beautiful blend of 50% fine Merino Wool and 50% soft baby Alpaca fibers. By spinning together these two yarns, Malabrigo has created a versatile and gorgeous DK weight yarn. It's got great squish for comfort, and a neat four ply for good texture. The kettle-dyed semi-solid colors are rich and really show off even the simplest stitches. This yarn should be hand washed. It's softness makes it perfect for next-to-skin wear on garments like sweaters, scarves, or gloves. It has a beautiful drape for shawls or wraps. Use it on lace patterns, cables, or with textured stitches to show off this yarn.
