Double Knitting

Double Knitting

Double knitting wool is probably our most popular yarn. We have a large variety including woollen and worsted as well as over-dyed versions. DK knits up reasonably quickly without making things too bulky. It suits nearly everyone and can work just as well for kids’ clothes as for men and women. If knitted double, the two strands together will make a good chunky and allow you to mix colours too!

See the options for choosing by breed, colour or yarn style in the panel on the right. Some of the leaner, smoother yarns like alpaca, Wensleydale or the worsted spun Gotland and Jacob/mohair will make finer styles, while a fluffy pure Shetland or Jacob will give slightly thicker results.

Select Shetland, Gotland, Hebridean/mohair or our ranges to find the wide selection of natural and dyed shades available.

Normally each 50 gram ball of Double Knitting yarn will be around 110 metres (119 yards) long, but this varies from breed to breed, so to be on the safe side you should work on plus or minus 10%. See our information sheets and download the one on ball yardages.

TENSION/GAUGE: to be sure of tension, you should always knit a sample tension swatch. Generally the knitter is one variable but the pattern is another, depending on the intentions of the designer! As a guideline: for our woollen spun DK, on 4mm/US 6, UK 8 needles, you will get around 20 sts and 25 rows to a 10cm/4" square. For worsted spun you will get 20 sts but probably only around 28 rows as worsted spun yarns are less elastic. The WPI is usually 11 in woollen and 15 in worsted spun yarns.
