Product information

Would you like to dye your own yarn? Would you like to learn how different dyes work on different fibres?
Then this kit is the perfect one for you. With this kit you can try dyeing five different qualities of yarn. Eventhough all of them can be dyed with acid dyes, each yarn takes on the colour in a different way or makes the colour appear different.

The kit includes:

  • Pure merino in three different weights
  • Pinta, a mix of merino, silk and ramie
  • Alpaca Fino made from fine alpaca wool

50g Pascuali Alpaca Fino 100% Alpaca wool

  • Needle size: 4-4,5 mm | 6-7 US | 7-8 UK
  • Length: 100 g ~ 200 m | 1.76 oz ~ 218 yds

Our Alpaca Fino from the Peruvian Andes is a very special yarn. The fine Alpaca fibre is soft, fluffy, gentle and feels very pleasant on the skin. It is, therefore, not surprising that this yarn has been used for over 3000 years. It is not only suitable for sweaters, cardigans, tank tops, but can also be used for clothing with high skin contact such as scarves, caps, gloves and socks. In addition to its outstanding wearing properties, alpaca wool is a yarn for every knitter, as entry-level wool for beginners who want to knit with an inexpensive luxury yarn, as well as advanced and true knitting experts.

100g Pinta | 60% Merino Wool, 20% Silk und 20% Ramie

  • Needle size: 3 mm | 3 US | 11 UK
  • Length: 100 g ~ 425 m | 3.5 oz ~ 465 yds
            We offer one of the best blends of natural fibres for durable, practical and beautiful wool socks especially for people who want to avoid synthetic fibres or simply
            who do not like to wear them. 

Because it is made with sheep's wool, it is warms in the winter.  The ramie in the yarn ensures excellent moisture absorption and the silk provides a very nice shine and high elasticity. 

This 4 ply yarn has is very pleasant to wear. It doesn’t itch and feels very soft to the touch. You can not only knit socks with it, but also many other types of garments.
