About Everlasting DK:
A 100% superwash merino wool, with 275 yds, knits 6 sts per inch on size US 6 needles

"12 finely-spun plies united with a gentle twist make for the perfect marriage of softness and durability. The fiber content, combined with our unique dyeing process — developed especially for the Everlasting bases — gives Everlasting DK its deep and lushly-shaded tones, while the multi-ply texture makes for exceptionally long-wearing, heirloom quality accessories, garments, blankets and more."

About Calm:
A 100% U.S. grown merino wool, with 240 yds, and 5.5 sts per inch on a US 7 needle
"Smooth, supple and oh-so-soft, Calm is an exceptionally well-balanced single-ply light worsted weight yarn. 100% US grown wool, combined with our unique dyeing process, gives Calm its deep and lushly-shaded tones, while the refined texture makes for extraordinarily cushy cables and wonderfully plush finished garments."
