Migration Yarn Journey DK is a wonderful “knit anything” yarn. 100% superwash Merino wool makes this yarn very soft and easy to care for. It’s great for anything from hats, cowls, wraps, and children's wear, to your favorite sweater. An excellent versatile yarn!
Migration yarns are dyed by local artist, Linda Wallace and sold exclusively at String Theory.

This is some of the best yarn I have ever used. Hold two strands together for a cowel, headband or hat. It is warm and stretchy to fit snuggly. Working on a big shawl with single strand, wonderful to knit with. Beautiful too!!
It is always a guessing game when buying online since you can’t see or touch the fibre. I just love the Migration yarn I got. The fibre the twist and the color. Totally satisfied.
This is one of my first stash purchases. I bought the yarn because I love the blue colors. I am planning to make a cowl, just looking for the right pattern.
I love Migration Yarn her speckles are to die for I have made several things and I have quite a bit in my stash waiting for more projects this project has a little Neighborhood DK at the end as I ran out of Migration
I look for patterns just so that I can make more Migration Journey pieces. The colors are phenomenal. The touch and feel so soft. Easy to work with. I like to support local FABULOUS artists who, in addition to creating great yarn, contribute some proceeds to causes I care about too.
