Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% of our fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru we have created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful. And when we combine the good stitch definition and drape of this four ply yarn with our amazing kettle-dyed semi-solid and variegated colors you have the perfect palette to help show off your stitch work.
Great for: Accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, color-work, and textured stitches.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Welcome to Split Rock Ranch where fiber is our passion...and it shows!
My dyed rovings, combed tops, and yarns vary from dyepot to dyepot, even when using the same "recipe" because there are so many variables when dyeing fibers. I will gladly do my best to recreate a colorway but cannot guarantee that a repeat dye job will simulate a previous dye job 100%.
If you need something special and don't see it in our store, please convo me to inquire about having me get it for you or make it for you. I do my best to assist fellow fiber artists in acquiring their dream fibers!
