Perfect Projects for Darn Good Twist Sport Weight Yarn

Today, we're going to shine a spotlight on our Darn Good Twist Sport Weight Silk Yarn. If you are not yet familiar with this eco-friendly yarn, let us take a moment to get you acquainted!

Our Twist Sport Weight Silk Yarn is comprised of two multi-color strands of sport weight yarn that are twisted together to create one 2-ply strand. It is available in four different colorways: Crocodile Snap, Peacock Feathers, Dragon's Tail and Fancy Flamingo. Each colorway of this soft yarn is bright, lively and vibrant! This unique, up-cycled and colorful yarn, has changed the way that many knitters and crocheters look at sport-weight yarns, as its 2-ply width makes it a great choice for a variety of projects.

Maybe you already have some of this hand-spun yarn on hand, or you're thinking about purchasing some in the near future to try something new. Either way, you're probably looking for the best knitting and crochet projects to create with it!

Enter: The yarn experts of Darn Good Yarn with some detailed advice on this topic!

Because of its light-weight and incredibly soft texture, our Twist Sport Weight Yarn  is a wonderful substitute for single-ply lace weight yarn or sock yarn. One of our favorite Instagram knitters, Krista of @thezippyzebra, used this yarn to knit a pair of "thick, warm, and squishy" socks! Check out her post below.

In addition to socks, this yarn is perfect for making colorful shawls, beanies, gloves, headbands and Amigurumi items!
