Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK

Knit or crochet something luxuriously soft for your little one with Rowan's Baby Merino Silk DK. This touchable blend of comfy superwash wool and smooth silk is a versatile one-ply dk weight, perfect for baby and children's garments and for light, drapey, and easy to care for adult projects, too. The colors are really what stand out--the wool and silk take dye slightly differently, so the yarn shades come out bright, deep and complex. Made in Italy.

      Comments about Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK:

      I knit a DK cardigan with this yarn and it was wonderful on the hands, very soft and drapy, just the look I wanted. Nevertheless, I found at least one knot in each of the 8 skeins I used for the project. For me, this is unacceptable for the quality and price range of this wool. Fortunately I had allowed an extra skein for the project so I did not run short to complete it.

      Comments about Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK:

      I used this product to make a cardigan and the drape and feel of it is delicious. The feel of it made the project go very quickly. What annoyed me most were the knots that I encountered in almost every skein.

              Comments about Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK:

              I really love this yarn. It is so soft. It's even softer after washing. I appreciate that it has some washability. I still wash it on cold and gentle, dry flat (not in the dryer). It's very easy to knit.

              I made a beret first, which technically it may be too drapey for it. I'm making an adult sweater and cowl (sort of a neck warmer). It's perfect for next to skin because of its softness. It would be excellent for baby items.

              I like the colors that are marled and because I love the yarn I wish they made even more colors.
