Birte

Birte is a DK weight 75% superwash merino, 15% cashmere and 10% bombyx silk three-ply yarn. 

Each skein is 3.98 ounces (113g) and 275 yards (251m) and knits at approximately 20-24 stitches over 4 inches (on US 4-6).

 

Birte (pronounced BEER-tah) is named for the Danish goddess of the home and crafting. This luxurious yarn is a blend of superwash merino, cashmere, and bombyx silk and is perfect for anything: scarves, shawls, hats, cowls, mitts, vests, sweaters and special socks to pamper your feet.

Birte is the DK weight version of Verdande (worsted), Sunna (fingering), and Nona (heavy laceweight, with a higher luxury fiber content).
