Our 2/10 Merino/Tencel has a hand and luster that make it ideal for an afghan or a baby blanket. The reversing dornik twill adds interest to the fabric, and it’s totally easy care. It would make great jacket fabric with one color in the weft. Available as a downloadable PDF only.

Comments about Valley Yarns #07 Throw in 4-Shaft Dornik Twill (PDF):
I doubled the length and added an additional 2" on each side and both ends to produce a larger version of this Dornick twill throw. I also changed the colors and the color order and it was lovely. I recommend doubling several of the outside threads for strength and to hold the selvedge better, as I pulled-in a bit on my first attempt. I sent this lap throw to England - where they probably make their own Dornick Twills (just as a guess). ;-)
