Fiber Characteristics

We fell in love with the idea of woolen-spun cotton, a less-common blending and carding process that preserves the loft and softness of cotton, while maintaining a downy, natural look to knitted fabrics. We sourced organic Texas cotton from Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative to combine with the finest US Merino we could find — with a goal of creating a yarn that “knits like wool and wears like cotton”. Our sweet spot was a 60/40 blend that balances cotton’s breathability and softness with Merino’s memory and bounce. Dapple creates sweatshirt-soft fabrics that are perfect for next-to-skin wear while preserving the natural look of heathered wool.

Dye Process

Dapple’s unique blend of wool and cotton transcends traditional solid colors. Dyed in the skein with traditional wool dyes, Merino absorbs the majority of the color, leaving desaturated dots of organic cotton throughout. This nuanced result evokes the dimensionality of a good tweed and engages the knitter with rich tonality. Experiment with the greater variability of dark tones or paint your project with a lighter, less variegated colorway. If you have specific color preferences, please leave a note in the box on the cart page during checkout.
