If you are interested in making your project bigger, please contact us to discuss the possibility of sending you 3 or 4 skeins in the same kit.
Why use wool? Here are the benefits:
It warms in winter and breathes in summer.
It manages moisture naturally, breathes (allows your skin to breathe) and does not make you sweat unlike other natural and synthetic fibres. Therefore, you won’t sweat as much or as much and won’t get a bad smell or not as much.
It doesn’t need to be washed often, sometimes just airing the garment will be enough, so you will save on washing which is good for your pocket and for the planet.
It is anti-allergic and anti-dust mite (it is a natural dust mite repellent).
It does not generate or accumulate static electricity, no more hair standing on end!
It is fireproof, it protects you from fire.
It is resilient, it does not deform, not even in the points that stretch the most (elbows, knees, …).
It is resistant to acids.
In addition, and in this case, silk gives an extra softness for the most demanding skins.
READ ME. Important information:
You should keep in mind that artisanal dyeing is not like industrial dyeing. Batches are small, and the intensity and distribution of colours may vary from one skein to another. If you need the skeins to be from the same dye lot and as similar as possible, please write this in the order notes to take this into account.
It is also important to know that the colours may look different on each screen and that the mix and distribution of colours you receive may differ from the photo because no two skeins are exactly the same.
In any case, no worries! because if when you receive the skeins they are not what you expected, we will start the return process without a problem and at no cost to you.
When it comes to washing delicate hand-woven garments, it is important to take extra precautions to maintain their shape and quality, even more so if they are woven with hand-dyed yarns.
Fill a basin with warm water and neutral soap or mild detergent specifically for delicates or wool.
Immerse the garment in the water and let it soak for 10-15 minutes. Avoid rubbing or twisting the garment, as this may damage the fibres and cause deformation.
Gentle rinsing: Rinse the garment with clean water several times until no detergent residue remains. Make sure not to twist the garment while rinsing.
Dry flat: Place the garment on a clean towel and gently roll the towel to remove excess water. Then stretch the garment out on a flat, block-shaped surface to dry. Avoid hanging as this can distort the garment. Tend to shade, prolonged sun exposure may fade colours.
Proper storage: After washing and drying the garment, store it in a clean, dry place. You can spray the garment with our mothproof perfume, gently fold it and place it in a breathable fabric bag.
