What makes a yarn irresistible? In our experience, half the reason people choose a yarn is because they are drawn by a specific colour. The other reason, is of course, how it feels to the touch, and not less important, where and how it is sourced. Choosing colours is a fun task and a very important part of venturing into a new project. The thirty-eight sophisticated colours in Tibetan´s range are sure to entice your knitting needles or crochet hook. No other yarn in the Pascuali range offers such a large colour palette!
We are committed to producing natural yarns with a sustainable supply chain that is socially, ethically and environmentally responsible. All environmental, animal health and workplace practices are of a high standard from the farm to the finished yarn.
Tibetan is a blend of merino ultrafine and yak wool. Our merino wool is, of course, mulesing-free and comes from Argentina, Patagonia. Tibetan is made with merino ultrafine which has a fineness of 17.5 microns. It is GOTS certified, which means that the farming process is organic and no toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemicals are used in its manufacturing. Tibetan’s noble yak wool component has its origins in Mongolia. with a fineness of approx. 16 microns.
The result is a luxurious yarn that is incredibly light, soft, gentle to the skin and very breathable. It is a yarn that is sure to inspire you to knit a variety of different garments and accessories from soft and cuddly hats, handwarmers, ponchos, and scarves to cardigans and pullovers. With just about every shade under the rainbow and its subtle sheen, the possibilities are endless and the creativity is all yours!
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.
