Toscana DK

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Right out of the paintbox and ready for Spring knitting!  Sirdar introduces us to Toscana DK, a gorgeous colour-phased yarn inspired by the sun-baked Tuscan landscape that takes on a magical transformation as the sun sets over the rolling hills.  This satiny-smooth cotton yarn is fully stocked in Canada and showing up on store shelves with an irresistible palette of colors to choose from, each one softly-muted with a printed effect over a natural cream base.

Six shades of Toscana DK are on the horizon, each one aptly named for a region in the Tuscan countryside- Siena, Orbetello, Arezza, Porto Azzurro, Val d’Orcia, and Firenze (shown above).
