Not only will you adore the stunning, tonal colors of Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK Hand-Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer, but you'll love its incredible softness too. This 100% superwash merino wool yarn is a versatile DK weight - it's perfect for nearly everything. It's squishy-soft, and, of course, hand-dyed right here in Massachusetts by the artistic and talented Kangaroo Dyer! Hand-dyed in the USA

This yarn is machine-washable, but hand washing is recommended to preserve the color. 

Hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in colors that are natural and may vary from skein to skein. There may be differences between pictures shown and the yarn you receive. To ensure the best results for your project:

  • Buy enough yarn for your entire project at one time.
  • When using hand-dyed yarn in your project work two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect.

If you have any concerns about your hand-dyed yarn, please contact Customer Service for assistance in returning or exchanging your yarn.

This is the softest yarn I've ever knit with. It'l like knitting with a cloud. It is a beautifully dyed tonal yarn. There is a nice amount of subtle color variation and some small undyed areas. That said, I ordered the Goldilocks colorway and expected a gold color based on the online picture. I ended up with more of a pumpkin color but it was still pretty so I kept it. I just ordered some more Kangaroo dyer yarn in the fingering weight. I'm hoping the color is more true to the photo.

I would not buy from this dyer again.

Comments about VALLEY YARNS Valley Superwash DK Hand-Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

I was disappointed that 2 of my skeins had major "white out" areas in them with little or no dye. I called Webs and was told they had many skeins left to send my 2 back to trade. After I mailed mine back, I received a call that they only had 1 skein left and it was worse than the ones I sent. If I had known they weren't holding skeins for me, I would have kept mine and tried to work around the light spots. As it is, I had to return 2 more, got stuck with 1 I had already wound and switch to a completely different colorway.

Beautiful yarn for the 2 color, beginner brioche cowl I am making. The color is like a dark inky blue. It's very soft and nice to work with. Would definitely buy this or other colors again.

I wanted a Blood Orange, this was close but not quite it...

Comments about VALLEY YARNS Valley Superwash DK Hand-Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

I was drawn to the color way because of the name "Blood Orange" and I liked what I saw in the sample: vivid oranges and reds. I would have preferred a touch of deep burgundy in the mix since real blood oranges have centers that are a deep purple/red tint. In my knitting, I have decided to add a burgundy strand to pay homage to the centers of the fruit. This is a matter of personal taste and I knew I wasn't getting that detail when I ordered the yarn. I just wish the dyer could have taken that detail into account. The three stars reflects the the fact that I think the dyer's color translation are too abrupt. The strong shades used in the skein could use more of a graded transition, in my opinion, which would result in subtler color compositions. I have considered other skeins by the Kangaroo Dyer which I have viewed in person, but have refrained from buying them because of this issue. I took a chance on this purchase and was reminded why I prefer the more nuanced dyeing of companies like MadelineTosh or independent dyer Sever Sisters Arts.

    Wish they had a bigger supply left of this yarn. It's so lovely that I don't think they can keep it in stock. Colorways are gorgeous, of course, as it's the Kangaroo Dyer (Gail) that makes this yarn what it is. So yummy!
