Simply DK Yarn - Ruby
DK Weight Yarn
100 grams 245 Yards 4-ply
75% Superwash Merino Wool 25% Nylon
Simply DK is a great basic DK yarn that is both sturdy and soft. Simply DK is a 4-ply yarn which makes it nice and round. It has great stitch definition and knits the most beautiful cables. The nylon gives it strength but best of all, it is still a comfortable yarn because of the soft Merino wool. One skein would make a warm squishy hat. It is also the perfect yarn for sweaters. I made my 1-year-old grandson a cabled sweater for his birthday. It's nice for children because it is machine washable, too.
Our variegated colors are hand-painted in small batches. We use a random dye process that creates a yarn that is unlikely to pool or stripe. What you see in the skein is very much how the colors will blend in your finished fabric.
Simply DK can be gently machine washed and dried, but we still recommend hand washing in warm water and laying flat to dry to ensure the best care for your project.
Ruby is part of our Birthstone series and will only be dyed in July. Once it is gone we won't be dyeing it again until next year.
