With Americana I captured the colors of American History and Folklore. I had dyed Merino wool, red and blue, then I spun it into yarn, and plied it with Merion wool in it's natural color white, and plied the two singles together. I got a Beautiful color that I call Americana. This is 4.1 ounces of yarn, that is DK weight at 13 WPI, and is 148 yards long. This yarn can be best knit with size 5 - 6 needles, with 5.5 -6 stitches per inch in gauge.
