Gloss DK Yarn

$6.49 50g / ball


Gloss DK is a luxurious blend of soft Merino wool and lustrous silk. The fiber blend takes dye very well, resulting in glowing saturated colors. Gloss DK has a large spectrum of colors, which are ideal for combining in colorwork projects. It is next-to-skin soft, and good for wearing around your neck or on your wrists, since it’s not itchy. Its sheen and drape produce a very sleek fabric, which shows off the stockinette stitch. Try using Gloss DK to knit fitted pullovers, dressy cardigans, or stunning wraps.

"The Gloss DK yarn is very soft and not a bit itchy.  I love the colors that it comes in too!  I recently finished a scarf with it and it was beautiful!  Best of all?  The recipient loved it!" -Grace N., Knit Picks customer

"I have to say, I'm very impressed with this yarn.  It knit up quite nicely and now that it is blocked, it's even softer and squishier!  I'll definitely be using this yarn again!"  -Stephanie, Knit Picks customer

Yum, yum, yum. What a lovely shine, and it feels so nice in my hands as I knit. It is working up beautifully, and I know I will be back to this yarn for other projects.

This... yarn... is... SPECTACULAR. I have made legwarmers that just shine and I can't wait to try out a new sweater pattern I have. I do recommend, however, that it be used with something patterned (like a cable) as it just gives more opportunities for the shine to come right through. Great to work with, can't wait to order a bunch more.

I've used this yarn in several projects and love it! It has a nice sheen to it, it works up easy, and really shows off the colors. I'll be making several more projects with it!

We live in a much colder climate and I used this wool to make my fiance and I some face covers for skiing. I cannot believe how wonderful this yarn is to work with! I'm just wondering... anyone that's worked with it, how do you think it would work as a blanket?

I love this yarn. I have made 4 cowls so far & it is a pleasure to knit with & it blocks great.

I received the Admiral Blue yesterday and am speechless by how beautiful it is. I've worked up half of a mobius cowl and the yarn feels fantastic between my fingers, looks beautiful, drapes beautifully, and has this wonderful sheen. I think I've found my new favorite.

I love this yarn. I have made several cowls for Christmas gifts this year. It is a pleasure to knit with & blocks wonderfully. The finished pieces are light as air.

Be very careful when you care for this yarn. It does stretch out, as advertised, when only wet. Agitation causes extreme felting. My gorgeous sweater fits a 3 year old. :-(
