Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca straight from from Peru, Malabrigo has created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. And when you combine the stitch definition and drape of this four ply yarn with Malabrigo's amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors you have the perfect palette to help show off your stitch work. This yarn is perfect for accessories and hand-washable garments, as well as vibrant colorwork.
