M&K Eco-Ull Color 311, yellow-green, ecological yarn, wool and Merino, 10-12 ply, 50g
M&K Eco-Ull is a beautiful yarn for the environmentally conscious knitter: Gorgeous ecological wool imported directly from Sweden. This is the ideal yarn for Nordic or Icelandic sweaters!
Marks & Katten is Sweden's oldest yarn manufacturer and well known for its amazing colours.
M&K Eco-Ull is a typical Scandinavian lopi-style yarn (single ply) which results in a beautifully even stitch appearance. The single ply is similar to a hand-spun yarn and can be a bit more challenging to knit with than a tightly plied yarn. However, due to the length of its fibres, it knits into a sweater that is both sturdy and soft.
The 100% natural virgin wool is sourced from Europe and produced and dyed under strict conditions with as little environmental impact as possible:
- Scoured with water.
- No use of textile agents.
- Dyed with environment friendly dyestuffs in accordance with guidelines of the International Association of Nature Textiles IVN.
- The labels are made from 100% recycled paper.
The yarn is much softer than traditional Scandinavian yarns. It will soften further with cold water (for example when blocking your garment).
