Dos Tierras

DK weight: 210 yards/100g hank. Available at TKE in about 25 colorways.
Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru, Malabrigo has created a DK weight yarn with an amazing hand.
A Ravelry Favorite to knit in 2 colors of Dos Tierras. We lessened the cowl’s width from 60″ to 22″ and lengthened to height to about 18″.
Come see our version of Copenehagen Calling at TKE. We used just 2 hanks of Dos Tierras.
We can give you exact changes
we made to this design.
A full sized shawl with incredible drape. Dos Tierras makes this design shine. FREE pattern on Ravelry.
