Columbia 2-Ply Yarn

You’ve found our original and most adaptable yarn. A basic worsted weight yarn, our Columbia 2-Ply is mule spun, giving it a character similar to hand spun. It yields smooth, cozy creations with a weighty feel to them. Available in a medley of 15 vibrant colors, the Columbia 2-Ply is an ideal choice for medium-weight sweaters, gloves, hats—any sort of outerwear, actually—as well as tote bags, socks and slippers. It’s easy to work with, making this a wonderful yarn to use when applying Fair Isle or Intarsia knitting techniques.
