Bachata is a soft DK weight option for a large variety of projects. Resilient and not prone to pilling, it is perfect for hard-wearing accessories like mitts and gloves or warm socks. Pure South American Merino wool, Bachata is a soft yarn that can comfortably be worn directly on the skin. The tight ply is the reason why Bachata brings out various stitch textures very nicely, like knit cables and seed stitch.
Bachata is a sensual Caribbean social dance, characterised by a close position of the partners and small steps and gentle hip movements. Today, many variations exist around the world.
