Sandnes Garn – Double Sunday
If you love the Sunday by PetiteKnit yarn, here is your next favourite! Indeed, Sandnes Garn has now released a heavier version of this very yarn, aptly named Double Sunday.
Thus, you will find in this new yarn everything you enjoyed with the fingering one. First, its composition: 100% merino, non-superwash. Soft for the skin, you can still machine-wash it at 30° using the wool program. Perfect to knit baby clothes, or a good basic sweater that you will wear often! Plus, the fiber spun to make this yarn is guaranteed mulesing-free*, even if it comes from Australia.
This yarn also features the colour palette developped by Mette Wendelboe Okkels, the Danish designer behind PetiteKnit. From soft neutrals to vibrant shades, these colours are a nod to her universe, a mix of softness and warmth. And still this beautiful stitch definition that makes the versatility of this yarn. You can use it for about any type of project and have a very nice look!
What you need to know about this yarn:
- Weight: DK
- Composition: 100% merino

*Mulesing is a chirurgical practice used by some sheep breeders. If you are sensitive, please don’t go down the Google hole and believe us: if you care about animal well-being, you will rather choose “mulesing-free guaranted” yarns.
