YARN FROM THE JACKET KNITTING KIT
5 (5/6/6) (7/7/8) balls of Columba de Ovillova (100% merino yarn) (100 gr/280 m). You can also choose any of the other colours of the same quality and thickness: Vela or Carina.
Keep in mind that the bigger the size you have, the more balls you need and the cheaper each ball is.
Circular needles of 80 cm of 4,50 mm (NOT INCLUDED IN THE KIT)
All the kits for knitting with two needles
A knitting kit is your best ally as a knitter, especially if you are a beginner, because you don’t have to worry about calculating the yarn you need, the designer has already calculated it for you.
Also, the kits are cheaper, and in our case, in this particular kit and in some others that you will find on the web, the bigger the size, the lower the price per skein!
Why use yarn? 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 at the points that stretch the most (elbows, knees, …).
It is resistant to acids.
Whenever possible, it is best to simply air the garment. If not, wash by hand with water at a temperature below 30º with a neutral soap. It is best to dry the garment horizontally.
READ ME. Important information:
You must keep in mind that artisan dyeing is not like industrial dyeing. The batches are small, and the intensity and distribution of the 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 the skeins are not what you expected when you receive them, we will start the return process without any problem and at no cost to you.
