Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Gauge : 20 to 24 stitches on US #6 (4 mm needles) = 4 inches (10 cm)
DK weight yarn is a little heavier than sport weight yarn and slightly thinner than worsted weight yarn. To find out more about yarn weights, you can find a yarn weight chart on YarnStandards.com
I recently ordered 2 skeins of DK PURE / speckled dk weight yarn in the Julirose colorway to use in the Vortex Cardigan. I was thrilled that Julirose was in real life even better than it showed up on the Biscotte website. I will definitely be recommending Biscotte yarns to my knitting friends.
We are happy to hear that from you Patricia. If you may share with us pictures of Julirose in her Vortex Cardigan, we would like to see the beautiful result :)!
I love working with this yarn. The color is beautiful and matches the description. The feel of the yarn is exceptional. I would definitely work with yarn again and again.
