We only use very good quality yarn that is imported directly from the factory. The yarn types are mainly produced in Italy, and the manufacturer guarantees that all wool comes from sheep that have not been exposed to mulesing. All merino wool yarns (pure and blends) have a micron count of 19.5 - 20.5, which is one of the softest you can get your hands on.
On a general basis, we distinguish between superwash-treated yarn and untreated yarn. Superwash-treated yarn can withstand being washed in a washing machine, although we always recommend washing on the wool program with detergent intended for wool/silk.
If nothing is stated about pre-treatment of the yarn, you can assume with reasonable certainty that the yarn is untreated and must therefore be treated with care during washing. All wool garments should be dried flat and stored flat. It is better to have the garment lying folded in the closet than hanging on a hanger.😉
We have yarn in these thicknesses:
– Lace weight
– Sock/4-ply/fingering weight
– DK (double knit) weight
– Aran weight
Lace weight is the thinnest of the three thicknesses. We have two types:
Lace mohair/silk(75% superkid mohair/25% mulberry silk, 420 m). With a recommended gauge that varies between 18 and 36 m per 10 cm with single thread, it can easily be knitted alone for airy and fluffy garments. If it is knitted double, you have an incredible number of possibilities, and typical gauge will be 14 - 23 m per 10 cm. It is also perfect as a companion thread to e.g. a strand of merino wool. Lace mohair/silk is used to give a shaggy and exclusive feel and appearance. Mohair's heat-insulating properties are approximately twice that of ordinary wool. Many knitting designers use lace mohair/silk either alone or as a companion thread in their recipes.
Lace alpaca/silk (75% baby suri alpaca/25% silk, 420 m) is equivalent to Lace mohair/silk in length and thickness, but thus consists of baby suri alpaca and silk instead of mohair and silk. The yarn is incredibly soft and deliciously fluffy.
Sock/4-ply/fingering weight is the yarn thickness that is most popular, and it is very usable with its recommended stitch strength of 28 m per 10 cm. It can also be knitted alone, double or with a follower thread. We have a number of types in this thickness, and will give a brief description of them here:
Thin pure merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, superwash, 400 m) is the bestseller. This is a regular twisted yarn in 4 strands, which is soft and lovely to work with. It is suitable for everything from baby knitting to adult knitting, large and small garments, and the knitting strength can be varied a lot by knitting double or using a trailing thread. Since it is superwash, it can be machine washed. However, it is always recommended to wash wool and detergent for wool/silk for knitted garments.
Thin pure merino wool (100% extra fine merino wool,easy wash, 430 m) is a deliciously soft and soft yarn for those who want all the good properties of superwash-treated yarn, but without the same footprint on the environment.
Thin untreated merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, not superwash, 400 m) is quite similar to the first yarn, but this is not superwash treated. This means that no chemicals have been added to make the yarn machine washable, which means that it is completely natural - only washed and spun. The colors tend to be more subdued on this yarn compared to a superwash-treated yarn. Consequently, speckles/colour splashes will float out somewhat more and will not give equally defined dots. This can be a nice effect depending on what is desired.
Extra thin merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, not superwash, 533 m) is the same yarn as the above, but chopped thinner. It can be used in the same way, and provides light and airy garments. This yarn is currently only available in yarn packsApril Cardigan.
Thin single strand merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, superwash, 365 m) is a deliciously soft yarn that is twisted in one thread. This gives a slightly rustic touch, and the yarn has a lovely shine.
Thin merino blend (85% extrafine merino wool/15% nylon, superwash, 400 m) is an incredibly beautiful yarn with all the good properties of merino wool in addition to a small amount of reinforcement in the form of nylon. It is called luxury sock yarn, but can be used for EVERYTHING. The yarn has a great shine.
Thin luxury merino (75% extrafine merino wool/25% mulberry silk, superwash, 400 m) is truly luxury in a skein! The yarn has a lovely mother-of-pearl skin and is incredibly soft and delicious. This is the go-to yarn when you want to spoil yourself or someone you love.
Thin glitter merino✨ (75% extrafine merino wool/15% nylon/10% silver stellina, superwash 80% extrafine merino wool/15% nylon/5% gold stellina, superwash) are two types of yarn in a deliciously durable merino blend with touches of silver or gold that sparkle..
DK weight is yarn with normal thickness. This means that there are an incredible number of recipes that this yarn can be used for with its recommended gauge of 22 m per 10 cm, but which fits well to 17-20 m per 10 cm without trailing thread. We have the following yarn types in DK weight:t:
Pure merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, superwash, 200 m) is a delicious merino wool yarn. This is the same type of yarn as our bestseller, Thin pure merino wool, but twice as thick.
Pure merino wool (100% extra fine merino wool,easy wash, 216 m) is a deliciously soft and soft yarn for those who want all the good properties of superwash-treated yarn, but without the same footprint on the environment.
Pure untreated merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, not superwash, 200 m) is a lovely untreated yarn that is incredibly soft and delicious. It is otherwise the same as the above.ende.
Pure merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, superwash, 216 m) is a wonderfully soft 3-thread yarn in merino wool. This means that this has normal twisting with 3 threads.
Merino blend (85% extrafine merino wool/15% nylon, superwash, 200 m) is a lovely yarn with a little reinforcement that makes it extra durable and dimensionally stable. This is the thicker version of Thin merino blend.
Luxury merino (75% extrafine merino wool/25% mulberry silk, superwash, 200 m) is the thicker version of Thin luxury merino. Still an absolutely fantastic yarn!
Aran weight is a thicker yarn, typically around 15-17 m/10 cm. Here we have the following types:
Thick pure merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, superwash, 162 m) is a deliciously soft yarn that can be used for thick garments that are knitted on large needles. Recommended gauge is 17 sts/10 cm on needle 5, but this can be varied a lot.
Thick untreated merino wool (100% extrafine merino wool, not superwash, 162 m) has the same good properties as the above yarn because it is the same yarn, but this is untreated and will therefore behave slightly differently in the dyeing process, as previously described in this overview. It also requires greater care during washing.
We have thesechunky the yarn types. This is usually knitted on needle 6, and is used for thick jumpers, slippers and blankets:
Chunky merino blend (70% extra fine merino wool/30%lyocell™, not superwash, 120 m) is a thick, shiny and soft yarn that is knitted quickly on large needles, or which gives a firm and stable expression on slightly smaller needles.
Thick mohair (73% mohair/22% merino wool/5% nylon, 180 m) is a deliciously thick and fluffy yarn that makes thick and light garments. Can be knitted alone or as a companion thread to a chunky sweater. Recommended gauge is 14 sts/10 cm on needle 6.
Thick mohair/alpaca (47% mohair/31% superfine alpaca/17% wool/5% nylon, 180 m) is a yarn in the same category as Tykk mohair, but in an even more luxurious quality. This is truly an exclusive and luxurious Italian yarn. It mainly consists of the finest kid mohair and super fine alpaca, only held together by a little wool andlittle bitnylon. The garments knitted from this yarn are wonderfully light and soft, and warm very well in relation to their weight.
