American Dream DK: Oulanka
This variegated colorway was inspired by a photo essay by Peter Essick about Oulanka National Park, Finland, in a 2009 issue of National Geographic. Oulanka is a vivid blend of fiery red, black, silver, white, sky blue, and green. It's handpainted on Licorice Twist, a 100% merino yarn where one of the four plies is superwash, creating a unique barberpole look that adds visual texture to your knitting or crocheting. The darker ply is more noticeable in semi-solid yarns, and more subtle in variegated colorways. Licorice Twist is a versatile DK weight that makes great sweaters, scarves, hats, and more.
Each skein weighs approximately 4 oz (113 g) and measures approximately 280 yards (256 m). Recommended needle size is US 4-7 (3.5-4.5 mm). Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.
