Anna & Juan Merino Worsted

Thrilled by how vibrant and varied natural colours can be, Josefina and Luzius have been doing intense research on locally available materials, colour sources and old dyeing recipes. The aim is not only to rediscover traditional textile techniques but also to apply them in a new and fashionable way.

Anna & Juan’s “Worsted Merino” is a smooth, naturally/plant dyed, evenly-twisted, round yarn with great stitch definition, ideal for knitting patterns with textures, cables and lace. With a fibre fineness of 19.5 µm it is very soft, can be worn directly on the skin and is also suited for baby wear.

The merino is GOTS, kbT-certified and mulesing-free and is from South America but processed in Switzerland.

Please make sure that you buy enough yarn to complete your project, as future dye lots may slightly differ.
