Leizu DK


1 in stock

Leizu DK is the same great yarn as Leizu Fingering, but in a DK gauge! Spun and dyed in Canada by the amazing Julie Asselin, the colours, texture, and knitability of Leizu DK is all we want in a yarn.

The name is inspired by Leizu, a legendary Chinese empress who, according to legend, discovered silk and sericulture when a silk worm’s cocoon fell into her tea. Because it’s a hand dyed yarn, we recommend that you buy enough for your project  - we may not be able to get the same colour, and there are no dye lots.

Tracy’s knit a Winterberry Vest from our favourite book, Knits About Winter in Leizu DK.
