This is an all-seasons DK weight yarn showcasing the beauty of natural wool. The lightest shade, Quartz 01, is a creamy ivory, with subtly flecked black fiber for added interest and texture.
Quartz 02 was spun from a beautiful variety of silver and brown fleeces, creating a heather yarn with subdued warmth and slight variegation.
The deepest gradient colour, Quartz 03, is a rare bird in mill spun yarn: A deep charcoal created from black and silver fleeces to make an onyx yarn, with enough texture and silver for stitch definition to shine. To this natural neutral pallet, Stone Wool has added a new series of colours dyed in the American Northeast.
The long staple length of Romney wool creates a drape and slink to finished knits, making it a wonderful yarn for open summery cardigans, flowing shawls, and hearty pullovers. Feel free to experiment with large needles well beyond the standard range for DK weight yarn.
