Spun from the finest commercially-available American extra-fine merino wool, Phoebe is unbelievably soft and luxurious to knit with, creating the most satisfying fabric—silky, bouncy, decadent stuff. Perfect in stockinette stitch, ribbing, twisted stitches, and cables. Phoebe comes in a tonal-dyed palette of nine colors, each one unique and ranging in variegation from skein to skein. To minimize pooling in variegated yarns, we recommend alternating skeins throughout your project; we’ll always do our best to match skeins in your order whenever possible.
Landing right in the sweet spot of DK weight is our decadent bird Phoebe. Soft, luxurious, structured and plump due to its four-ply structure, Phoebe is made from the finest commercially-available extra-fine merino top grown, spun and dyed right here in the United States.
Ideal for many types of projects from simple stockinette to textural stitch patterns and lace, we suggest knitting Phoebe at a gauge of 5 to 5½ stitches per inch on size US 5-7 (3.75-4.5 mm) needles. Coming in at 301 yards [275 m] per 100g skein, the yarn’s beautiful, tonal-dyed palette ranges from delicately nuanced to sophisticated variegation. Garments and accessories worked in Phoebe will be appreciated for their snuggle factor and cozy warmth. And knitting with this yarn is itself a treat—an ultra-soft, uniquely satisfying experience that is out of this world.
