Delightful DK is a plump, 4 ply yarn with a delightfully squishy texture. This next to skin soft yarn is perfect for socks, shawls, and garment, and It holds up beautifully over time with minimal pilling and wear. This is considered a heavy DK/light worsted and works well as a yarn sub for both depending on yardage/grams and the drape required for the pattern.
Orders will ship within 10 business days.

Color Disclaimer: While I try very hard to take the most accurate photos possible, all monitors are configured differently and some colors may look different in person than they do on a screen. Please read the color descriptions below and email me if you need more information.

Like all of my bases, Delightful DK is certified mulesing and cruelty free and manufactured in South America. I use only the highest quality base yarns and professional dyes in my process.
Please note that all yarns are hand dyed and may vary in their exact appearance from batch to batch and skein to skein. Though I do my very best to accurately represent each colorway, the calibration of monitors may vary.
Please use cold water and mild soap to wash finished objects. This will not only preserve the life of your garment, it will help maintain color fastness. I rinse and set my yarns until the water runs completely clear, but PH levels in water, soap, and even skin can cause some slight bleeding color transfer.
