DK

DK weight yarns offer you the warmth of worsted weight yarns without the bulk, while giving you the drape and ease of a fingering or sport weight yarn. Warm, wooly fingerless gloves, year round sweaters, and shawls perfect for chasing away winter’s chill are all great options for DK weight yarn.
