Handdyed yarn in a delicious merino blend consisting of extra fine merino wool and exclusive silk.
A shimmering, soft and strong yarn produced from extrafine merino with mulberry silk added for a natural lustre, added strength and more drape. Worsted spun from long staple fibres to produce a yarn with great stitch definition. The silk adds extra body to the yarn to hold stitches in shape on larger or lacey items. Creates items that shimmer in the light and have luxurious drape. Ideal for shawls and wraps
This yarn is also a lovely alternative if you want a complimentary strand that does not add "fluff" to your knitted garment. This can therefore replace Lace Mohair/silk and other similar yarns in most patterns.
The yarn is untreated, so it is as close to its origin as possible.
We use acid dyes, which are gentle for the environment and provide vibrant and very durable colors.

Please note that the actual product color may vary from the visual representation on this website. There may also be variations in different dyelots. It is therefore recommended to buy enough yarn for your project in one order.
Hand-dyed yarn, as the name suggests, is a craft, and there will be differences between skeins. There are a few things that might be good to know before you get started:
There is different ways of using skeins, however when knitting garments, we recommend, as good practice, alternating skeins, it’s not usually essential but it does help to spread colours evenly. The Helix method is our favourite technique when knitting in the round. The more colorvariety in the yarn, the more important. This is explained nicely when knitting in the round in this video, and when you knit back and forth in this video.
If you don't want to knit every other round from different skeins (this is done at your own risk 😉), it is recommended to do this a few rounds when changing yarn. This applies regardless of the color of the yarn.
We want you to get the best possible result on the knitwear you spend a lot of time and resources on. 🥰
Please note that the yarn may contain excess colour. Therefore, wash separately the first time.
All knitted garments should be stored flat.
