Honky Tonk DK in Come On, Eileen
Now taking the stage… Honky Tonk DK, one of our most sensational yarns! A blend of 75% superwash merino and 25% Ingeo (a renewable fiber made from corn), this is a luscious, silky yarn with a unique sheen to it. Ingeo takes no dye, lending this yarn a unique luster & shine, and combined with its single ply construction, this yarn is truly special. There’s a whopping 300 yards in each skein!
Another benefit of Ingeo is that it has remarkable moisture-wicking properties, making it perfect for sweaters and large shawls. It will keep you dry and comfortable (not to mention looking fantastic in your handmade garment!).
All skeins milled after November 2018 are produced with our amazing superfine domestic superwash merino! This sensational wool has never left the US - from sheep to skein, it’s produced entirely in America. The difference is clear once you’ve worked with our yarns - less pilling, more body and bounce, and unbeatable color absorption! It’s extra soft too, and now this yarn is 100% made in the USA!
This colorway is called Come On, Eileen, inspired by the song by Dexy's Midnight Runners. The last photos shown here are a Boomerang Cowl and Tam knit up in this colorway on our Rock Star yarn to give you an idea of what this color looks like worked up!
