Cornwall (DK weight BFL)

The Knight with Two Swords on Cornwall

Withstand epic battles

Sometimes you want a yarn that will do more – a yarn that can withstand epic battles with patterns, frogging, and cables. Cornwall is the yarn on which dream projects are built – it has amazing stitch definition, and the Bluefaced Leicester wool brings a durability Merino just can’t provide. The superwash treatment makes this a great yarn for gift knitting, too, because even though it’s strong, it’s soft enough for most projects and easy care. (Note: Hand-dyed yarn should always be hand washed in cold water for best results. The pictured colorway is The Knight with Two Swords.)

100% superwash BFL (Bluefaced Leicester)

Less pilling while still being soft

Because BFL has a longer staple length, it won't pill like Merino does. That's good news for high wear items such as socks and gloves/mittens. Learn more about BFL.

DK weight

246 yards in 100 grams

Lighter than worsted weight yarn, DK weight yarn makes an excellent garment (and will work up much faster than fingering weight yarns) that won't feel quite as heavy. One skein is perfect for a hat or a pair of mitts.

Semi-solid and Tonal Colors

Add depth to your project without sacrificing any design elements

Whether you are working with lace or cables or want to do colorwork, the tonal colors won't hide your hard work but also won't be as flat as a true solid color.

Cornwall is the yarn you want beside you as you slay your crafting dragons

"I became a Cornwall base fan a few years ago and have knitted at least seven projects with this beautiful yarn. Cornwall is the perfect yarn to make cables pop (like on my Blackberry Cabled Cardigan, pictured) and it holds its shape well. My hands love knitting and crocheting with Cornwall, and my eyes love the gorgeous tonal colorways. BFL is such a fabulous fiber and Cornwall's twist is perfect for showing off all types of designs." ~Erin Malahowski
