Tandem from West Wool is a non-superwash DK weight yarn. Creating our own yarn has been a long-held dream of Stephen and Malia's, and in 2019 we launched West Wool with our two custom-spun bases, Tandem and it's fingering weight sibling, Bicycle.
This popular yarn is very versatile due to its soft, smooth texture and robust quality which comes from the Merino and Texel blend. Texel wool adds texture and extra structure to the yarn without impacting the overall softness which is attributed to the Falkland Merino wool. Both wools are naturally mulesing free. Tandem is a 3-ply DK weight yarn with fantastic stitch definition and soft hand, making it a favourite for garments and accessories. Tandem is available in a variety of unique vibrant colours and classic neutrals, showcasing a palette that encapsulates both Stephen and Malia's different. yet complementary styles.
