DK weight Dapple balances the spring and bounce of fine American Merino wool with the airy softness of Texas organic cotton, with a lofty 2-ply woolen-spun construction for that “favorite sweatshirt” feel in baby sweaters, lightweight shawls, and garments. Dapple’s unique dye process creates heathered tonal colorways that shift throughout each skein and vary from skein to skein for one-of-a-kind projects every time.

 

3% of profits from Dapple help to support the National Black Farmers Association in perpetuity, to aid farmers who have historically been excluded from land ownership and to recognize the complex history of American cotton.

 

We source fluffy organic cotton from Texas and fine Merino wool from Utah & Nevada to create a yarn that knits like wool and wears like cotton. Our sweet spot – a 60/40 wool-cotton blend that balances Merino wool’s elasticity and bounce with cotton’s breathability and softness. Dapple’s woolen-spun construction creates sweatshirt-soft fabrics that are perfect for next-to-skin wear, with the heathered look of our favorite wool yarns.

 

DYE PROCESS

Dapple’s blend of Merino wool and organic cotton is dyed in the skein with traditional wool dyes. Only the wool in the yarn absorbs color, leaving speckles of undyed organic cotton scattered throughout each skein to create gently heathered hues with an engaging tonal effect. Experiment with fades, ombres and nuanced colorwork in your knitting – Dapple’s darker colorways tend to display greater variability of tone, while lighter colorways are more softly shaded.
