This yarn is true to its name … “Flauschig” means something like “fluffy, soft, cuddly” in Swiss-German.
It has been worsted spun in two plies from equal parts of silk and merino, a truly luxurious mix that will prove to be your workhorse yarn, suitable for a wide range of both garments and accessories like shawls, hats or even gloves.
Siide-Flauschig is warm and soft enough to wear next to your skin, but also has quite some strength and luster, provided by the silk. Though it is labeled as worsted weight, it could also be used in the DK and even the Aran weight range, depending on the characteristics of the fabric you aim at.
Each single skein of this wonderful yarn has been hand-dyed by us in small batches of ten, with utmost care for the fiber and a true love for beautiful colours. Most of the current colours are in the semi-solid to almost-solid range, some few colourways could be defined as slightly variegated.
Our dyeing technique results in colours changes that are not prone to pooling at all. For larger projects though, as with all hand-dyed yarns, we recommend to introduce a new skein while still knitting with the old one – this way, possible slight colour differences from one skein to the other will not be noticeable.
You can find Siide-Flauschig on Ravelry here.
The merino is not super-wash treated, so we recommend hand-washing with good quality yarn wash, as for all our yarns.
This yarn is available for custom orders: if you have any special requirements regarding yardage, number of same-dyelot skeins or even colour, please do contact us here.
