Julie Asselin Douillet
This yarn has "cozy" written all over it! It's a thick and sturdy yarn made from 100% wool sourced and spun in the USA. Douillet's one-ply structure results in plump stitches that are very appealing. We love it for bulky hats, and mitten projects and have found it the perfect yarn for our Way Up North Slippers. It has lots of structure and wears really well even when you stomp on it. Douillet does have a wooly texture and not everyone will like to wear it on sensitive areas, making it perfect for outer wear.
We are also fond of Douillet for Punch Needle (use with Oxford Regular Size Needles) and Rug Hooking and for Tapestry Weaving too. All your projects made with Douillet will have subtle and beautiful colour nuances thanks to the expert dyeing abilities of Julie Asselin; a wonderful artist from Quebec that we can not say enough good things about.
Like all Bulky yarns Douillet will knit-up fast and is very friendly to beginners.
