Huasco DK is a beautiful, hand-dyed yarn with fun, bouncy hand. The variegated colorways blend perfectly with the semi-solids, making it easy to create a harmonious palette. The super-soft Merino is fine enough to be worn next to the skin. Because of the twist, this yarn can be machine-washed with care, or it can be lightly felted by washing with hot water and high agitation. Please note that despite its washability, this yarn is NOT superwashed and will felt if subjected to agitation, such as tumble drying, while wet.
