70% Silk / 30% Royal Alpaca
60 g-skeins à 450 m / 492 yd
Siide-Füürneem is a stunning yarn: produced from the highest quality silk, combined in two plies with Royal Alpaca, a very exclusive fibre and almost as soft and fine as cashmere!
It is the perfect yarn for all your lacey shawls and scarfs, giving a soft sheen and a slight halo. And again, the name of this stunning yarn is Swiss-German: “Füürneem” means "elegant” and "genteel" … the perfect name!
Each single skein weights 60g and has been hand-dyed by us in small batches of ten, with utmost care for the fiber and a true love for beautiful colours. Like with most of our yarns, the current colours are in the semi-solid to almost-solid range, some few colourways could be defined as slightly variegated. This luxury fibre takes the colours beautifully, let yourself be surprised by the subtle play of colours!
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-Füürneem on Ravelry here.
We recommend hand-washing with good quality yarn wash, as we do 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.
