The kit includes 2 Skeins of DK weight (276yards each) 100% SW merrino, is easy to work with, and produces a beautiful blanket that you will make over and over again. You can purchase almost any color DK that you see on my website. I will email you a picture of your colorway prior to shipping. This kit includes the pattern and 2 skeins of DK. I recommend a tonal color that will bring out the diamond pattern in the knitting.
