Fiber Content

Dimond Laine Downy Fingering:

Downy is over-the-top — as in soft layered upon soft. It’s a thoughtful blend with each fiber adding something to the whole: alpaca (50%) brings substance and warmth, cashmere (34%) offers a velvety hand, and elastane (16%) holds everything together with lightweight elasticity. It just might be our cuddliest base yet! A word about that dash of elastane — it’s just enough to help the finished item keep its shape, making Downy truly perfect for any garment or accessory!

50% Alpaca, 34% Cashmere, 16% Elastane 390 yards per 100 grams

Hand wash suggested. Lay flat to dry.

Elmer Fingering is a woolen spun Merino/ Cashmere blend. Like Elmer Tweed, it's rustic with a beautiful texture and richness. It’s fantastic on its own and perfect for colorwork. It’s light, lofty and holds its shape beautifully. All the hold and snap back of wool with a whisper of cashmere for softness and halo.

Elmer Fingering is 410 yards per 100 gram skein 80% Merino/20% Cashmere

Hand wash suggested. Lay flat to dry.

Elmer Tweed Fingering

We just had to have us some tweed— some Elmer Tweed! Elmer Tweed is woolen spun with more than just a pinch of cashmere. It has a rustic essence and a beautiful richness. It’s fantastic on its own and perfect for colorwork. This tweed holds its shape beautifully while remaining lightweight. The little tweedy bits of color keep you wanting to knit “just one more round” in anticipation of what bits will appear next. This incredibly plush yarn will bring you right onto the tweed bandwagon if we do say so ourselves! (Elmer Tweed is 70% wool and 30% cashmere.)

Fingering Weight: 400 yards per skein

Hand wash suggested. Lay flat to dry.
