Made in Chicago, Illinois

Item details

A lovely Donegal DK yarn, hand-painted with strokes of deep purple, oranges, blues, greens and tans. Donegal yarn has specks of NEP (a nylon fiber) spun into it, which gives it a rustic, tweed-like texture. This DK weight yarn is an excellent, all-around yarn for knitting any of your favorite winter accessories and gifts.

85% Superwash Merino Wool/15% NEP (a nylon fiber that creates the specks of color in the yarn)
DK Weight -- 4-ply
231 Yds. per 100g/3.5oz skein

Machine Washable on gentle cycle with like colors, if desired. Lay flat to dry, as with all fine fibers. I wash each skein thoroughly after dyeing, but a small amount of color bleeding may occur during your first washing.

Please note that each skein is individually hand-painted, so slight variations between skeins can be expected. Also note that I do my very best to portray colors to perfection, but differences in computer monitors may alter color depiction slightly.

If you would like your yarn wound into a ball, I would be more than happy to do so for you. Please be sure to note this in shipping instructions.

As always, please feel free to conversation me or email with any questions, comments or concerns! I am happy to help!

Thank you for visiting Mammoth Woolworks and come again soon!

I will ship orders within two business days of receipt of payment, unless otherwise noted. If you have purchased multiple items, and want them packaged together, please indicate this in shipping instructions. If you want your skein hank made into a ball, please indicate this in shipping instructions as well.

Orders are shipped via USPS. In most cases I will use Priority Mail within the United States. Priority Mail packages come with a confirmation code that can be passed along to you if you would like. To countries outside the United States, USPS First Class or Priority International will be used (this depends on size of shipment and cost). I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES. Unfortunately, sometimes the post office loses packages, and sometimes packages get stolen off the door step. I wish I could afford to replace these packages for you, but unfortunately, once the package is out of my hands, I have NO CONTROL over their handling.

International customers are responsible for any international customs fees or tariffs incurred in the transit of your order. Unfortunately, USPS does not offer tracking on international shipments.


Mammoth Woolworks currently accepts Etsy gift cards, Etsy Direct Checkout and Paypal as payment.

If you are not familiar with Paypal, it's as simple as paying with a credit or debit card at your corner store. You pay Paypal and Paypal pays me. I do not have access to your personal information at any time during the transaction.
