Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% fine Uruguayan merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru, Malabrigo has created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. And with this combination of drape, 4-ply construction, good stitch definition, & the amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors, you have the perfect palette to help show off your stitch work. Great for accessories, hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork, and textured stitches. Introduced in 2017.
