SNEFNUG NATUR is a super soft, light, airy and full-bodied yarn, made of only natural materials in an extra delicate blend of 55% uncoloured alpaca fibers, 10% merino wool (non mulesing) and 35% organic cotton.
This is a DK weight yarn. 110 meters per one skein of 50 grams.
The recommended needle size is 4.0 - 6.0 mm and the recommended gauge is 12-16 sts per 10 cm and approx. 24 rows in height.
SNEFNUG NATUR is produced by an Italian family-owned spinning mill, with consideration for environment and animal welfare, thus the merino wool used, is of course mulesing free, and comes from South America. The alpaca is from Peru, and the cotton is from Egypt.
SNEFNUG is composed by an organic cotton tube, as the core, in which a fine and neat blend of merino wool and alpaca is blown into. Altogether, this gives a strong and at the same time, super soft and exclusive yarn.
SNEFNUG is particularly suitable for baby and children’s knitwear, as well as for the current trend of oversize knitwear on big needles for adults, as sweaters, cardigans, scarfs, and hats.
The beautiful colours in SNEFNUG NATUR is nature’s own colour palette.
It is recommended to HAND WASH the finished work, using a wool detergent, and lay it flat to dry. When washing in the machine, the finished work can shrink up to 7%, but will stretch again in use. It is recommended to knit ribbing edges a little firm and slightly narrower, as these likewise will stretch in use.
