Product Information

Made with 100% natural fibres, our yarn Pinta was originally intended to be a sock yarn, butt soon it proved to be much more than that: it is truly an allrounder wonderful yarn that can be used to knit many different kinds of garments and accessories.  

What distinguishes Pinta from other yarns is its very unique composition: 60% merino, 20% silk and 20% ramie. We source our merino wool from Patagonia.  It is mulesing free and is RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) certified.  The mulberry silk gives it a glossy shine and smoothness. It gets its robustness from its other very special ingredient: ramie, an eco-friendly fibre, highly sustainable and a very good alternative to synthetic fibres, is a plant fibre of the nettle family noted for its length and toughness.   

Pinta comes in twenty-five fabulous colours designed in 6 blocks of 4 colours each plus white. These four blocks are formed by pairs that work together complementing each other with one colour being a rich, strong colour and the other being a muted colour, i.e. not as saturated as its counterpart.   

Pinta is perfect for all-year-round clothing due to its thermoregulating properties. No matter how hot it is outside, you’ll feel fresh all day long. The elastic properties of Pinta make it  extremely wrinkle resistant. Due to its wonderful blend, Pinta is more flexible, bends delicately against your skin and  doesn’t itch one bit. This hypoallergenic yarn treats your skin softly and with great care. As usual, we put Pinta on our needles. You can read all about our knitting test in our blog here.

Pinta also supports the concept of sustainability and is naturally 100% ecological! It is highly durable and completely biodegradable which helps to prevent unnecessary waste. The fact that it does not have to be washed so frequently thanks to its natural self-cleaning properties also has a positive impact on the environment. Learn more about this wonderful yarn here.

Care

<p>We recommend washing your knitwear by hand in lukewarm water with a mild wool detergent. Dry flat, preferably on a terry towel, to keep its shape. Please do not dry it on a heat source or in the sun!&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />Read more about wool care in our blogpost&nbsp;<a href="https://www.pascuali.de/blog/wool-care">here</a>.</p>
