Phillis DK, by Birch Hollow Fibers - DK Weight
Birch Hollow Fibers uses ethically-sourced wool from farms where "mulesing" - an inhumane method of raising sheep - is not practiced. Birch Hollow is a member of the Hudson Valley Textile Project which focuses on sustainability and connects farmers, makers, dyers, and more.
Phillis DK is a speckled, hand-painted yarn, and Birch Hollow develops their colorways inspired by nature and literature. Phillis DK is named after Phillis Wheatley, a former slave and poet, who wrote the first book of published poetry by an African American author.
Due to the method of dying, each skein and batch may be a little bit different, and we recommend buying all of the yarn you need for a project at one time. We also suggest alternating skeins when knitting projects.
Phillis DK has excellent elasticity, stitch definition, and a good drape. It is a good choice for shawls, sweaters, hats, scarves and other projects.
