Our yarn Balayage, an alpaca-merino mix, which we developed together with the knitwear designer Melanie Berg, stands out not only because of its wonderful yarn quality but also because of its fantastic colour palette: A total of five different colour schemes, each consisting of four individual colours, which were designed according to the principle of colour gradients. If you combine colours from one scheme, a very harmonious colour effect is created; if you combine colours from different schemes, exciting contrasts are the result.
To top it all off, in addition to the 20 standard Balayage colours, we now offer one hand-dyed special dyeing per colour group - perfectly matching the individual colours and simply beautiful! Although the hanks are dyed in batches of 1kg, we make every effort to achieve the greatest possible dyeing uniformity.
Tip: It is advisable to always order enough yarn for your desired model to ensure you knit your entire project with yarn of the same dye batch. In case of doubt, please make a gauge sample immediately after receiving the yarn. In this way, you can estimate whether you have ordered sufficient quantity and, if necessary, reorder directly.
We recommend washing your knitwear made of Balayage by hand in lukewarm water with a mild wool detergent.
Dry flat, preferably on a terry towel, to avoid stretching. Under no circumstances should you dry it directly on a heat source or in the blazing sun!
