Announcing Dimond Laine Birdie DK!

We’re thrilled to offer this base for the first time – a 90% alpaca, 10% silk blend in a shapeshifting DK-weight to join our Birdie family. And, while Birdie DK is related to our beloved Birdie and Big Birdie bases, it is a base unto itself too – and we’re in love! 

The higher alpaca content offers even more squishable softness than you’re used to in the rest of the Birdie family, and it provides a slubby, thick-and-thin quality to both the yarn in the skein and in the finished fabric. Speaking of the fabric, think texture – just a bit of wild wavy-ness to your finished stitches – in an overall cuddly and drape-y finish. Delicious.

We’re offering Birdie DK in 246 yard, 100 gram skeins. It's a shapeshifter yarn, with a gauge range of 15-22 sts over 4” – the sweet spot for garments is 20-22 sts over 4”, and for accessories, all the way up to 15 sts over 4”.

We’re introducing Dimond Laine Birdie DK with one of our favorite shawl projects – the Rosa Shawl by Isabell Kraemer. Our sample shows the shawl in three colors: Cambric, Antique, and Plaid Is My Favorite Color. This shawl is a delight to knit with slip stitches and stripes, and in Birdie DK, the result is so soft and so very wearable.
