Our latest 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 skeins 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.
