Gloss DK Yarn

$6.99 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

Lovely, buttery soft yarn with good drape and shine; Gloss is a good name for it. I made a long-sleeved pullover sweater in the DK weight with cable details and it shows good stitch definition. I was surprised and disappointed to find it extremely susceptible to felting with ANY agitation. Unfortunately, it also shrank. So, handle gently: NO agitation, NO heat.

Loving this yarn! Please make in off-white and in a mustard color! Some notes for others: Weight seems like worsted weight or close to it. Steel has a slight purple tone IMO.

This stuff is so soft! And it holds the stitches really well so it's a good yarn to start with if you don't have a lot of experience. Plus the colors have a good range beyond the normal pastel colors, so it's great for men's accessories.

I'm disappointed to see that the skeins have shrunk from 220 yards to 123. That's a decrease of 97 yards. Honestly guys - what kind of 'sale' is this? The yarn has actually increased in price! NOTE FROM KNIT PICKS: I am sorry for any misunderstanding, our Gloss DK has always had 123 yards per 50 gram ball. Perhaps you were thinking of our Gloss Fingering, which is still 220 yards per 50 gram hank.

I've used this yarn to make toques for gentlemen. Love the variety of colors-- I can convince guys to wear colors other than blues and blacks based on the quality of the fiber especially after project completion. No experience with washing; taking other reviews seriously. Love the color selections-- I will continue to shop this line for gift projects and color availability.
