Lucy in the Sky
Hand-dyed yarn in delicious reinforced merino wool.
The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. Nylon is added for extra durabilty. The yarn has a mother-of-pearl effect to it, and looks and feels exclusive because it is.
This yarn is very versatile and can be used for any next to skin project (scarves, jumpers etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves. The yarn is very well suited for children's and baby clothes.
The yarn is dyed with acid dyes, which are gentle on 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 between 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. 🥰
We recommend hand washing followed by a quick spin, or wool wash program temperature 40°C if you trust your washing machine. Use ONLY detergent intended for wool/silk (Milo or such). Feel free to add a little clear vinegar - this helps preserve the colors. Do not soak the garment.
Please note that the yarn may contain excess colour. Therefore, wash separately the first time.
All knitted garments should be stored flat.
