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 a 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
Thin mohair/silk (75% superkid mohair/25% mulberry silk, 420 m). With a recommended knitting strength 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 knitting strength will be 14 - 23 m per 10 cm. It is also perfect as a companion thread to e.g. a strand of merino wool. Thin mohair/silk is used to give a shaggy and exclusive feel and look. Mohair's heat-insulating properties are approximately twice that of ordinary wool. Many knitting designers use thin mohair/silk either alone or as a companion thread in their recipes.
Thin alpaca/silk (75% baby suri alpaca/25% silk, 420 m) is equivalent to Thin 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.
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 follower 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% extrafine merino wool, easy wash, 430 m) is a deliciously soft and loose 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% extra fine 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 fine merino wool (100% extra fine 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 April Cardigan yarn packs.
Thin single strand merino wool (100% extra fine merino wool, superwash, 365 m) is a deliciously soft yarn that is twisted in one strand. This gives a slightly rustic touch, and the yarn has a lovely shine.
Thin reinforced merino (85% extrafine merino wool/15% nylon, superwash, 400 m) is an incredibly delicious 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 sheen.
Thin luxury merino (75% extrafine merino wool/25% mulberry silk, superwash, 400 m) is truly luxury in a bundle! 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 yarn types in a deliciously durable merino blend with elements of silver or gold that glitters.
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% extrafine 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.
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.
Reinforced merino wool (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!
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 knitting tension 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 the overview. It also requires greater care during washing.
Chunky merino blend (70% extrafine 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 jumper. Recommended knitting tension 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 Thick 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 bit of wool and a tiny bit of nylon. The garments knitted from this yarn are wonderfully light and soft, and warm very well in relation to their weight.
