Item details

Buoy DK is a small batch yarn that started with a custom fiber blend that we fell in love with. Buoy is a blend of three British breeds, including the rare breed Manx Loaghtan. We use a blend of 37.5% Blue Faced Leicester wool, 37.5% Shetland wool and 25% Manx Loaghtan wool to bring together the best attributes of each breed into a beautifully lofty yarn that is perfect for sweaters, hats and mittens - anything that needs a little bit of strength, but still lofty and wearable.

Mallard is a kettle dyed rich blue green teal.

Buoy DK is a 3 ply, worsted spun DK weight yarn. 263 m/288 yds per 100 g/3.5 oz skein.

Gauge: 5-5.5 stitches/inch

Needle: US 5-6, 3.75 – 4 mm

Hook: US 7-I , 4.5 – 5.5 mm

Blue Face Leicester is a British breed that is well known for being the finest of the medium wools, offering softness and luster.

Shetland wool brings loft and air into the blend and the characteristics we expect from a classic wool.

Manx Loaghtan is a rare breed that combines tight crimp with a longer staple length and brings a bounce to the yarn.
