The combination of wool and silk makes the yarn light and suitable for warm winter clothing, light summer clothing and children’s clothing.

  • Wash your knitwear before you start using it. The yarn fills the stitches more evenly up when washed. And the knitwear will get softer.

  • The yarn is unevenly spun. To get the best result knit a few rows from one skein, then change to another, as if you were knitting stripes.
