Romney + Merino is Stone Wool’s second mill-spun yarn, developed in partnership with Twig & Horn: an all-seasons DK weight yarn showcasing the beauty of natural wool. They worked with upstate New York-based Battenkill Fibers mill to spin lustrous Romney with soft Merino wool, raised in the American West, into a worsted 2-ply DK weight.
This Romney and Merino yarn is versatile in its application. The long staple length of Romney wool creates a slight drape to finished knits, balanced by springy soft Merino, making it a wonderful yarn for open summery cardigans, flowing shawls, and hearty pullovers. Feel free to experiment with large needles well beyond the standard range for DK-weight yarn.
We hope you love every moment of working with this yarn, and that you or your lucky loved-one wears and enjoys the garment made with this yarn for years.
