This is a great summer yarn – the silk & linen make this yarn cooler than a pure merino-yarn. Due to the linen this yarn gets softer and softer each time you wash it – some may remember this from their grandma’s bedcovers!
This yarn has spectacular colour effects due to its silk and linen content which take on plantdyes very differently than wool. It can be used for socks as the silk & linen gives it stability. But that’s not all – it is also great for summer tops!
This is also a stripey socks-dye: depending on your tension the 2 colours wind in stripes around the socks!

One skein is usually enough for a pair of socks up to shoe-size 45/10,5/13 (EU/UK/US). A regular size sweater needs 400g (4 skeins).
If there is more than one skein in stock, they are all from the same dye-lot. Due to the nature of natural dyeing the skeins you purchase may vary slightly even within a dye lot.
It is commonly advised, that if you have purchased 2 or more skeins for a project and want to aim for a good colour transition, alternate the skeins every couple of rows/rounds or when starting a new skein alternate a few rows with the old skein.
Every attempt is made to ensure the colourway represented on screen is as close to the actual colourway as possible. However, colours may appear different due to variations in monitors and screen setting.
