DINKEL

Some yarns, especially rustic, breed-specific ones, have so much character and personality, you don‘t want to overpower them with a fancy pattern. Both yarn and pattern will fight for your attention and you won‘t be able to appreciate either of them fully. But give those yarns some space and listen to what they want to become, and they will bloom and reward you with easy handling and a beautiful texture.
Dinkel does exactly that. The twisted ribbing sets the perfect scene for a yarn to show its best characteristics. The lace motif on the back of the hand breaks with the strict lines and adds another subtle layer of interest.
