Home > SHOP > Birte (DK)
Birte is 3-ply, DK weight 75% superwash merino, 15% cashmere and 10% bombyx silk DK weight.

Each skein is 3.98 ounces (113g) and 275 yards (251m) and knits at approximately 20-24 stitches over 4 inches (on US 4-6).

Birte (pronounced BEER-tah) is named for the Danish goddess of the home and crafting. This luxurious yarn is a blend of superwash merino, cashmere, and bombyx silk and is perfect for anything: scarves, shawls, hats, cowls, mitts, vests, sweaters and special socks to pamper your feet.

Birte is the DK weight version of Verdande (worsted), Sunna (fingering), and Nona (heavy laceweight, with a higher luxury fiber content).

Ball Winding Fee

Have your yarn wound into center-pull balls for you!

The fee is per skein. Please add the appropriate number to your order as follows:

If you would like your entire order wound, please add the number of ball winding fees equal to the total number of skeins in your order.

If you only want certain yarns wound, please note which yarns in the "Comments" section of your order.

Ball winding is only available if it is added to your order, at the time your order is placed, for the number of skeins you'd like wound. Thank you!

Please note that yarns which have been wound into balls cannot be returned. Thank you!
