Dapple is a two-ply DK weight yarn, the newest yarn on the block from Brooklyn Tweed!
Made from 20.7 micron wool and organic cotton, this yarn has been woollen-spun, which preserves the loft and softness of cotton and gives a natural look to knitted fabrics. The smoothness of the cotton softens the rustic texture of the wool, which makes Dapple a dream to knit.
This yarn has a marled and richly tonal hues, where skeins can range from light to dark with every skein being unique. NO dye lots to coordinate and that means that your project will be a one of a kind!
Be creative with Dapple and experiment with fades and ombres! You will love the look and feel of this yarn.
