North Light Fibers Water Street DK is a DK-weight, 3-ply, 60% Merino wool / 40% cashmere goat yarn with 165 yards per 65 gram hank. Water Street is a buttery-soft DK yarn with a slight halo and a luxurious hand. The superfine Merino wool and cashmere goat is blended into unique and complex heathered colors by Laura and Karyn at North Light Fibers. The attention to detail on this yarn is amazing, and only the finest cashmere and Merino wool are used to provide a lush yarn that is softer when worked up than in the already deliciously-soft skein. Ideal for luxe yet classic accessories and garments.
North Light Fibers produces high quality, handcrafted, minimally processed artisanal yarns made 100% on Block Island. The natural fibers are taken from shearing and dying to carding, spinning and plying to create beautiful saturated colors. Given the seasonal nature of the island, the economy is based on summer tourism. North Light Fibers is working hard to develop year round manufacturing and potential to create items on the island that are exported off-island for sale, expanding the diversity of the island’s economic base
