Potluck #82 - Easywash
Hand-dyed yarn in deliciously soft merino wool that is easywash treated. This means that this is a yarn that has all the good properties and durability of superwash-treated yarn, but without the use of environmentally harmful chemicals in the process.
Extrafine merino wool is used for these yarns so they feel soft and gentle against the skin. The yarns are worsted spun from extra long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel. Very soft and springy, the multiple plies and twist provide extra robustness.
A very versatile yarn, it can be used for hats, shawls, wraps, mittens and light jumpers. Washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, it is also suitable for children's and baby clothes.
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.
