Life DK

Life DK is a luxurious yet practical yarn, available in a wide choice of colours. We mix 25% wool with 75% premium acrylic and this makes the yarn is soft and supple, as well as being easy on the hands to work with. Life DK washes and wears extremely well and is perfect for a whole range of projects due to the versatile nature of the yarn.
