A true DK yarn.
Arbor is spun at a DK weight with the aim to create a classic workhorse yarn that is perfect for sweater and accessory knitting. Arbor's fabrics are light enought to wear all year round.
Soft enough for next-to-skin wear, Arbor is spun from pure 23-micron Targhee fleece sourced from flocks in Montana and South Dakota.
A round 3-ply structure creates amazing stitch definition in knitted fabric, making Arbor an excellent choise for cable and texture patterns.
Skein-dyed in Maine by Saco River Dyehouse, Arbor launches with a beautiful palette of 30 colours that include cheerful brights, moody jewels tones and sophisticated neutrals.
Saco River Dyehouse is an organically certified dyeworks in Maine.
