Corners That Remain Unexplored
Extraordinary DK

65% Swiss Mountain silk, 35% linen

249 yards (228 meters) per 100 grams

5-6 stitches per inch on US 5-7/3.75-4.5 mm

$40 per 100g skein - dyed in a batch of ten skeins/two bases

I love this base for its versatility and distinctive look. Linen in any form is one of my favorite fabrics, second only to cotton, and linen blended with silk is a truly luxurious element with which to knit something, well, extraordinary! 

I always recommend this yarn for totally apropos spring and summer tanks and tees, especially those designed by Åsa Söderman (ÅsaTricosa on Ravelery).

These skeins were dyed up in a batch of 10 skeins (5 each of two bases), and you can go take a look at how similar, and yet different, the baby camel/silk Divine Fingering took the dye compared to the silk/ linen of the Extraordinary DK.

These ten skeins across two bases are the last batch I have dyed in Hawaii. After living here for 25 years, I'm heading off to Madison, Wisconsin, to be closer to family, and importantly, have more seasons in which I can relish wearing all my warm woolly knits!
