Fiery scarlet and candy red with contrasting sky blue and alabaster on different yarn bases:
DK weight Jämtlandsfår: 220m per 100g skein. This is Sweden's softest merino wool. The yarn was spun in a small mill in Nortällje, Sweden. All wool was sourced from nearby farms.
Cobweb lace kid mohair (21 micron): 225m per 25g skein, needle size: 3.5 to 4.5mm
Yarn caking service available here.
I use only colours and fibres from nature: Walnut husks, indigo, buckthorn bark and madder roots as my go-to dyestuff. And yarns that I carefully source from environmental and ethical initiatives, and from small family farms.Learn more
You can use the wool wash program of your washing machine, or gently wash by hand in lukewarm water using detergent or soap for wool and silk. Gently squeeze the suds through the fabric, taking care not to rub the fabric too much, and avoid steep changes in water temperature as this may cause shrinkage. Rinse the garment in clean water, squeezing gently without twisting or wringing. A short light spin in the washing machine will help remove most of the water. Dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators and sunlight. Never use a tumble dryer!Buy Washing Soap
