  • Gorgeous cashmere kits made with 100% certified sustainable, organic traceable cashmere yarn, hand-dyed by Chroma Nima!

    A neutral grey really shows up the colours that gently shift through the rainbow. Choose from either neons with a light grey (Southern Lights), or richly saturated colours with a dark grey background (Northern Lights).

    We love the simultaneous contrast of this design. As you work through the colours, you wonder whether THIS blue is the turning point to purple? Or is there a more blue blue to come?

    Using just stocking stitch, increases and decreases, only one colour is knit with at a time.

    Difficulty level: beginner / intermediate

    120g / 450m undyed 4-ply cashmere yarn

    25 small hand-dyed balls for the stripes stripes (totalling 50g / 188m)

     printed, hard-copy pattern

    chroma - the purity of a colour or its freedom from white or grey

    nima - thread or yarn

    Chroma Nima's creator, Vicky Streater, lives in Wimbledon with her husband, three children and gorgeous greyhound. She is passionate about colour and the environment, and obsessed by colour gradients and the mechanics of how colours change from one to the other. She loves natural dyes for their serendipity and refusal to be predictable. She loves the quietness of the process of knitting, how it's so creative, meditative and useful.

    Her cashmere is certified organic, traceable and sustainable with an average fibre length of 34 - 38mm at less than 16 microns. The sustainable commercial dyes she uses are very "wash and light fast", and are founders of the global Responsible Care® initiative and a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. The organic botanical dyes she works with have been chosen for their light and wash fast qualities.

    All of her packaging is from recycled paper and are recyclable. The electricity used to dye her yarn is from renewable sources. She has experimented with reducing the amount of water in her dyeing, and now only uses a third of what she used to. She doesn't use toxic auxiliaries or mordants and takes care to ensure her dye baths are fully exhausted.
