Excelana DK - Eau de Nil

100% British wool, grown, spun and dyed in Britain and hand finished here at Monkley Ghyll.

A DK weight yarn, it is worsted spun for a soft handle, and works exquisitely for Fair Isle projects as well as textured and lace stitches, blocking and holding its shape beautifully. Despite its softness, Excelana is a sturdy yarn that doesn't pill easily. 

250 metres/273 yards per 100g skein

Recommended gauge between 20 and 22 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.75-4mm needles.

Eau de Nil a calming, pale green with a grey undertone. One of our perennial best-sellers and one of my all-time favourite colours.

Did you know Eau de Nil means water of the Nile!
