Respect for nature and humankind.

Our premium quality yarns are made of natural materials, produced in a socially and environmentally concious way. 

With such lovely yarn, you don't need a complicated pattern!

Working with hand-dyed yarns.

Hand-dyed yarns are ideal for small projects and give big projects extra liveliness. However, there are some things to keep in mind when working on big projects: 

  • Make sure that you purchase sufficient yarn from a dye lot to finish your project.
  • Hand-dyed dyed skeins can have subtle variances, even when they're all from the same dye lot. Especially with variegated colours, there can be quite a lot of colour difference between 2 skeins. For any project requiring multiple skeins, I recommend that you alternate balls every few rows. (You can also gently ease into a new skein by alternating between the ‘live’ ball and the new ball for about 3 cm. This will help the transition to not be obvious.)

Does this sound very complicated?

No worries, some things take time. This includes comprehending the finer nuances of knitting and crochet. Or perhaps you just don't have an eye for it, or don't feel like thinking about technicalities.

If any or all of the above applies to you, play safe and stick to our patterns. You can't go wrong there.

Caring for your Yarn.

It is best to store your yarn in zip-lock bags. Keep your yarn out of direct sunlight.

The yarn is thoroughly washed before it is sold. However, it is possible for a small amount of dye to run from the yarn during the first wash.

I recommend that you wash your yarn or garment separately. Some yarns can be machine washed, others should be washed as little as possible. Natural fibres have a self-cleansing quality so washing should not be necessary very often anyway. Check the info about your specific yarn to find the washing instructions.

For the longevity of your finished item, I recommend hand washing your handmade items. Dry them flat (in the shade!) and generally treat them gently.

Because such a precious, handmade project deserves the best love and care.
