I love dk yarn, and this combination of colors helps blend the yellows and grays of the project. Extremely pleased!
I ordered this yarn to knit Seascape with the yarns used in the model. It's beautifully speckled and works so well as a contrast color. I love it! This yarn will feel so comfy knit up as a sweater.
