We worked closely with Marianne Isager to bring you the most loved shades in the palette for this beautiful yarn so you can be guaranteed to pick a winner!
We love using this single ply wool on it's own to make charming lace shawls since it happily keeps it's shape, so the scarf/shawls don't collapse, but still stay nice and soft. It also makes the loveliest light sweaters and tops.
Use Spinni in multi-coloured work to add it's characteristic structure to the knitted fabric. Marianne's colour palette in this yarn is breathtaking on it's own, but becomes something else entirely with paired with Alpaca 1 or Alpaca 2, or Silk Mohair.
Since its spun in a single direction, it's not really suitable for knitting in stocking stitch in the round. The knitted fabric will have a tendency to skew, but this won't be a problem if you're working a textured pattern in the round.
(Note that the colours suffixed with "s" are dyed on natural grey fibres which gives them a warmer tone. All others are dyed on white fibres which lends them a clearer quality.)

Renowned for classic yarns made from natural fibres, well suited for knitting, crochet, weaving and embroidery.
All the wool qualities are ideal for felting and for dyeing with plant dyes.
It is important to us that our yarns are produced with the greatest amount of care taken to both animals and humans.
Yarns bearing the same numbers can replace each other and a number 1 yarn combined with a number 2 yarn can be worked together to make a yarn equivalent to a number 3 yarn.
Yarns marked with * are suitable for machine knitting.
THE COLOUR RANGE
Carefully created so the colours work well together both within and across the qualities. We rarely change the colours, as the range primarily consists of BASIC COLOURS, amongst which contemporary colours can always be found.
The colours and qualities of our finer yarns can be mixed to create unique pieces.
As a rule, single ply, densely spun yarns should not be used individually for working in the round, as they may pull the finished work. When worked together with other qualities this problem is avoided.
