A collaboration between Cestari Sheep & Wool Company, established 1946, and YOTH Yarns to create a signature new yarn base. Cestari Sheep & Wool Company is a family owned business that produces some of the most beautiful yarns on the market and shares a story that we love and admire.
Daughter is a masterpiece of rugged tradition that will last for generations. It is a woolen spun 3-ply heavy DK/light worsted weight wool blend that is perfect for cables, textures or just good ol’ stockinette stitch. This yarn is sturdy yet soft, long wearing yet lightweight, and has a homey unrefined slight thick thin nature to it. It is available in a Daughter a 150g/330 yd skein or Daughter Mini a 75g/165 yd skein. Find the word Natural in the color name to know it’s undyed.
It is not necessary to alternate skeins with this yarn like some of our other bases. We do however recommend matching dyelots in same color when working on a larger project. We will do this for you when placing an order online.
Little note about Black Truffle: Our dyehouse has done their very best to keep our dark solid black, as colorfast as possible on our wool yarns. To help lessen the chances of color transferring, we recommend that you soak the knit item alone during hand washing. If you are planning to knit Black Truffle alongside a lighter color, we suggest that you keep your soaking time to a minimum (no more than 20-30 minutes).
