Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% of our fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru you get a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. And when you combine the good definition and drape of this four ply yarn with the amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors you have the perfect palette to help show off your gorgeous weaving design.
We source our fiber from an amazing family-owned yarn company located in Uruguay and Peru called Malabrigo. They have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations, produced mostly by women of all ages. These colorful yarns are made out of the softest fibers available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life.
Malabrigo wool is 100 % produced by farms that allow their free - range sheep through the hills and are herded by actual old - style shepherds. The controversial practice of mulesing does not exist in Uruguay. When using Merino wool of a different origin, they make sure it is also mulesing - free. By using Malabrigo, you make sure you're handmade projects are sustainable and ethical.
As Malabrigo’s yarns are hand-dyed, colors may vary from skein to skein, even within the same dye lot. This is increased by variegated color. Make sure to get enough yarn for your project.
