AllKnitPro base yarns and dyes are Oekotex Class 100 certified – a standard developed for the textile industry and suppliers to protect those who work with and wear fabrics, fibers and yarns.
Merino wool is one of the thinnest, with Superfine Merino only a quarter of the width of a human hair. That unique slender profile makes Merino wool exceptionally soft, as the long fine fibers can bend more than the wool from coarser breeds. High-grade merino wool can feel as soft as cashmere. Symfonie superwash Merino is strong enough to be put into a washing machine, a fact that belies its exceptionally soft texture.
Hand-dyed yarns often vary from batch to batch, but the effort was made to create “color recipes” that can be counted on to produce consistent color. As a result, over 60 semi-solid and variegated hues were created – Every one of them so beautiful that all had to be included in the production of our first DK weight yarn. It was named VIVA, a name that resonates with life.
