Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibres used in this ultra-soft yarn.
Malabrigo Dos Tierras knitting and crochet yarn is created by spinning together 50% of our fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru, kettle-dyed in semi-solid and variegated colours.
It is a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. Malabrigo Dos Tierras knitting and crochet yarn has a great stitch definition and an excellent drape.
Great for: Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colourwork, and textured stitches.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. In some colours, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random colour distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball
