Life in the Long Grass - DK Twist

Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon Only 1 left!

Hand-dyed in small batches in South West Ireland, County Cork.  

We were so smitten with these sweaters in the newest Issue  of Life in the Long Grass Magazine , we've ordered some of the lovely DK Twist for these patterns.

Dk Twist is a heavier yarn weight similar to worsted weight and a sturdy, structural yarn with good stitch definition and lots of smooth softness. 

The patterns can only be found in the  Life in the Long Grass issue 7 magazine.

We do not normally stock this base so get it while you can! 

The Flower sweater -Bláth, designed by Teti Lusak and the Swoncho Sweater designed by Lucía Ruiz De Aquirre Rodríguez both use the gorgeous DK Twist for these stunning designs.
