Malabrigo has introduced a new yarn base, called Dos Tierras, a special blend of Merino and Alpaca.
The yarn comes from Uruguayan sheep, but some of this wool is processed and manufactured in Peru, while another part is still processed and manufactured in Malabrigo's homeland, Uruguay. They created Dos Tierras, which means Two Lands, as homage to these two beautiful countries. By spinning together 50% fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru, Malabrigo has created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. The 4-ply structure of the yarn gives a great stitch definition to show off texture, and gives a wonderful drape to your finished garments.
You can find this base in 22 of kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors, with which you can create the perfect palette to help show off the finished object of your favorite craft.
