DK Yakity Yak is such a soft, smooth, round yarn that it is a personal favorite. We've made shawls, sweaters, hats, and even socks with this yarn. It works up quickly because of the DK weight. The color is rich and deep with a silvery undertone. It also has great stitch definition and shows off textured knits well. We've used this yarn in many of our kits and our customers love it. It could possibly be the world's most perfect yarn!
Chroma is the term we use for our space-dyed yarn. We originally dyed this up for weavers because it can make a gradient-type warp. For other needle arts, your mileage may vary. The yarn may possibly create a candy cane type of striping when knit into socks depending on your gauge, or it may pool. Be open to the serendipity of the yarn.
We recommend hand washing in warm water and laying flat to dry to ensure the best care for your project.
Diamond is part of our Birthstone series and will only be dyed in April. Once it is gone we won't be dyeing it again until next year.
