Introducing Dianella DK! A Skein Sisters Exclusive in collaboration with Blackwattle Yarn & Fibre.
We got in touch with Angela at Blackwattle Yarns a few months ago and told her that we were looking for a unique and beautiful 8ply/DK weight. We asked if we could work on a collaboration together and find that super-special yarn. Dianella DK is the result. With 80% superwash merino and 20% bamboo, Dianella DK has an amazing handle - it's soft and quite smooth, with plenty of structure. The merino gives it a gorgeous warmth and wooliness while the bamboo adds the smoothness along with drape and some sheen.
We were also excited to name this new yarn Dianella, after the gorgeous Australian strappy leafed plant with its beautiful flowers and vivid blue berries. Bamboo being a grass, we wanted to choose a name that meant 'grass' but with an Australian flavour to it.
In the dyepot, Dianella comes into its own. The bamboo doesn't dye in the same manner as the merino so it creates an almost heathered appearance, particularly in the darker colours. Even in the tonal colours no shade is solid, they all have life and a subtle shimmer. The multicolours are simply gorgeous with an almost watercolour effect! We have chosen a range of exclusive Skein Sisters colours along with some of the best of the Blackwattle Yarns standard colours.
Knitting with Dianella is a dream, it's smooth in your hands with beautiful stitch definition in stocking stitch and lace.
