I am really happy with the base yarn I am using for the organic wool sport weight line of masi|knits yarn, but I have been searching for a washable wool of equal quality. I am thrilled to find that a superwash merino in a DK weight that I have been testing looks like it fits the bill. It has a lovely hand (not quite as soft as the organic wool, but still quite nice) and takes my bright dyes well.
Especially when I was starting out and even now when I knit gifts for non-crafters and kids, I think having a washable yarn is critical. In general, crafters know to be careful with a handmade item, but most people these days will just toss something into the washing machine.
Keep an eye out also for our newly designed website and store coming in May :::fingers crossed::::
