Back in stock: String Theory Merino DK.

Last week, we had the pleasure of unpacking a large box from String Theory which was stuffed full of their Merino DK.


Having knit two cowls, a sweater, and a pair of mitts with String Theory Merino DK, I’m clearly a fan of the stuff. It’s soft and smooth, with excellent stitch definition, springy and dependable in the hands, and expertly hand-dyed in rich, memorable colorways. Our Purl Ridge Cowl is shown in “Earthquake,” a variegated colorway with more hidden hues than one might notice at first.


Whenever we get more Merino DK in stock, I’m tempted to start another project.


This time, it was Anne who gave in and cast on with String Theory Merino DK. Looking for just the right yarn for this year’s trio of hats for her grandchildren, Anne settled on Merino DK for all the reasons listed above, along with one other: Merino DK is machine-washable, perfectly suited to children’s hats.


Enjoying the yarn, and knitting on a deadline, Anne has likely finished this second hat by now, and I expect to see the start of a third soon enough.


Come by the shop to see our new selection of colors in Merino DK, and check out String Theory’s other yarns, as well. See you there!

    • Thanks Catherine – indeed; you guessed – my two little guys. I have completed the cobalt cap and have started the third for our little miss – a “riff” on Wurm – have to have ear flaps in chilly NYC.
