Knitting with Dovestone DK

Dovestone is a glorious totally British mix of Bluefaced Leicester, Wensleydale Longwool and Dark Brown Masham and available in beautiful deep colours that reflect our wonderful countryside. The yarn is a fine doubleknit, so will take beginners a bit of getting used to if they’ve been working with chunkier yarns, but being a little bit patient is worth it when you see what you get! Dovestone DK is available as a single skein or ball, or in one of our kits with Dovestone.
