    ROAN DK is a gorgeous hand-dyed, American-sourced and milled yarn from Primrose Yarn Co.  The term roan refers to an animal, typically a horse, that has a coat of a main color thickly interspersed with hairs of another color mixed with white.  You'll see these characteristics in the fiber which gives it a tremendous depth of color.  This unprecedented blend of American superwash merino (white) and domestic non-superwash merino (brown/black) is custom-spun at a local, family-owned fiber mill, then hand dyed in-house at Primrose dye studio.  The precise percentage of the fiber blend creates a yarn with the best qualities and traits of both fiber types, and none of the worst. It will not grow overtime once blocked, it is suitable for next to skin wear, while still offering the grip for colorwork and steeking, it is a plump 3-ply that is excellent for cable knitting and, with proper care, it will not pill.  It takes color like a dream as you'll see with it's deep saturated palette that allows the beauty of the blended yarn colors to just show through.
