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).
