A wool-free, itch-free DK weight yarn. This cotton, bamboo, silk, and elastic blend has a soft hand and a wonderful stretch that rivals classic wool yarns. CoBaSi DK works up into lightweight and breathable summer tops, sweaters for those with wool sensitivities, summer blankets, kid's clothes, and more. It is a great substitute for patterns calling for a wool DK weight yarn when you're knitting for someone that can't wear wool, and it comes in a handful of bright summer colors that can be mixed and matched with the solid-colored version of this yarn available HERE.
The construction of this yarn is truly unique, it consists of 5 plies of 3 plied stands with a loosely spun elastic core, that's 15 plies total making this yarn ultra-durable and long-lasting.
