Licorice Twist DK: War for the Oaks
Licorice Twist is 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.
This colorway is War for the Oaks, inspired by Emma Bull's book of the same name. (Go read it, if you haven't already!) It's rich forest greens, punctuated with earthy brown.
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.
