Cottage DK is a luxurious non superwash, 19.5 micron merino wool yarn, perfect for your coziest knits. It is a durable 4 ply yarn that doesn't skimp on the softness. This yarn is untreated merino wool so it will felt. Garments made with this yarn will need to be hand washed and air dried only.
Cottage DK, merino wool
3.5 oz, 100 Grams/ 246 Yards
4ply/ DK Weight
Recommended Needle Size: 4-6
This yarn is certified cruelty free.
Garments made from these yarns should be washed in cool or room temperature water with minimal agitation (it is agitation and heat that causes wool to felt) and laid flat to air dry.
This fiber was handdyed by ontheround using professional quality acid dyes. I dye my yarn in small batches and no skein will be 100% the same- that's what makes working with hand dyed yarn so fun!
I do my very best to accurately photograph my yarns but please note that not all monitors are the same. My yarn is made in my smoke-free, pet free studio in Rockland Maine.

The best thing to do is hand wash you garment (and any other wool garments) in the sink using warm water (not at all hot) and a small amount of gentle soap, we recommend Long Winter Soap Co. Sweater Soap, available in the Mercantile Section on this site.
Gently spot clean stains and extra grimy spots with your hands being careful not to wring or pull, as that will stretch your garment. Rinse clean using cold water, this will get all the soap out.
Now take your garment and place it in your washer machine and spin out the extra water. If you don't have a washer at home lay your garment out on a couple of towels and roll it up to get out the extra water.
Finally, block your garment into its original shape and allow to air dry flat on a clean towel. In the sun or by a wood stove will speed up the process.
Remember to flip it over so the backside dries as well.
This process will keep your knits looking good and lasting for a long time!
NOTE: This is the same process I use for cleaning my superwash yarn. Although it is technically machine washable, I find that my knits last much longer when they are handled with the most care.
