This yarn has a traditional feel: it is medium to soft to the touch, and yet hard-wearing. It doesn't pill and it keeps its shape, making it similar to the yarns from a bygone era. It is ideal for large & small projects, and we particularly recommend it if you are working from a vintage knitting pattern for DK (double knit) yarn.

Treasured by movie fans worldwide, this is the actual yarn chosen by Peter Jackson and his team to create knitwear for some of the Hobbits of Middle Earth™.
