The yarn had a moment of fame when a sweater knit in the yarn was awarded first place in the 1965 National Wool Needlework Contest. The true fame, of course, went to Shirley Braxton.
The product remained active in the market until 1974 and then was discontinued. Now, I have no doubt I'll find more about Danskyarn (there are quite a few magazines awaiting review), and when I do, I'll come back and update this post. And, there are a couple patterns in the shop, should you want to look.
Thanks for dropping by.
