Prairie Spun DK By Brown Sheep



New Colors!

  • DK310 Cadmium Yellow–Neon yellow
  • DK320 Electric Lime–Neon Green
  • DK330 Molten Magenta–Neon pink

Prairie Spun DK Yarn from Brown Sheep Company is a 3-ply, 100% US wool. The color palette is inspired by the beautiful prairie in Nebraska.

The DK weight (or sport weight, as it can be called) results in a lighter, more fluid fabric than its heavier cousin, worsted weight. Many hand knitting designs for cardigans and pullovers use the DK weight because it results in a lighter weight garment.

We like the fact that Brown Sheep Co., located in Nebraska, provides the hand knitting market with a variety of yarns sourced here in the US.
