Yarn of the day

Yarn: KUDON Merino “Sukkis”

Color: Himmeli

Materials: Merino tencel (merino 80%, tencel 20%, 100 g = 350 m)

This yarn is very soft, breathable, and does not itch even sensitive skin. Tencel makes the yarn stronger, so this yarn is also suitable as a sock yarn. This yarn is great for example knitwear and sleeping socks.

There are no man-made fibres in this yarn. Both merino wool and tencel are natural materials. Tencel is made from sustainably sourced eucalyptus. Produced from the pulp of eucalyptus.

NATURAL DYES

In the video, there is colour soup made of dried mango peel. Eija dyes Kudo Bamboo merino wool yarn. She adds alum to the pot as alum is used in natural dyeing as a mordant.

Eija usually dyes small batches in the pot. She utilizes various dyeing methods such as hot and cold dyeing. She also uses Finnish textile dyes. During the summer season, she uses a variety of naturally occurring plants for dyeing.

Her plan is to organize a yarn dyeing course in the summer of 2021 in Tampere!
