Comments about 29.00 Dovestone DK:

This yarn is really special. A blend of Bluefaced Leicester and Wensleydale, it has that lovely lustre, creaminess and drape characteristic of those British heritage breeds. Because I'm a spinner, I could pick out BFL by touch alone. I purchased a dark navy (Endeavour) and magenta (Rhubarb), and the dye is so deep and beautiful. It's even prettier in person. According to the label, some of the fiber comes from dark brown sheep for the darker colors, so there is that nuance to the color. The yarn has the most amazing quiet lustre. When knitted, it will look like a million bucks. Like bespoke tailoring. Like a fine wine. It is probably not for everyone. It is not the softest yarn in the world, but I plan to make a cardigan and wear a layer under it.

On a trip to Colonial Williamsburg last summer, I bought a couple of skeins of some handspun Leicester Longwool in the natural cream shade. When I saw this Dovestone yarn at Webs, I realized I could incorporate my souvenir yarn into a colorwork project. When the Dovestone yarn arrived, I was pleased to see that it is very close in fiber content and spinning method and the three yarns will do very well together. None of this will mean much to anyone else, but it means a lot to me, and I am really excited about this project and about playing with such lovely, small-batch, rare-breed artisanal yarn.

I love this yarn

Comments about 29.00 Dovestone DK:

I am always a bit leery about how scratchy an all-wool yarn is. I knit a cable sweater with this and can wear it directly against my skin with no irritation. It was great to knit with...

Comments about 29.00 Dovestone DK:

I bought one skein of Dovestone dk to make some simple fingerless mittens. I wanted to try some new yarn. I am about half-way through mitten one and I am loving working with this yarn. It is springy and resilient, so soft to the touch, and I really like the stitch definition. I can't seem to put the project down for long and am very happy I picked this yarn to try. I look forward to using it again in another project.

Comments about 29.00 Dovestone DK:

This is some of the most luscious wool, ever.
It's not scratchy or coarse, and can be used to create next to the skin sweaters. It knits up evenly, the colour is consistent and the yarn has a beautiful hand. The stitch definition is fantastic. Cables are crisp and clear.
Long Live Dovestone DK!
