SNEFNUG is a super soft, light, airy and full-bodied yarn which exclusively consists of natural materials in an extra delicate blend of 55% baby alpaca, 10% extra fine merino wool and 35% cotton.
SNEFNUG is produced by an Italian family-owned spinning mill with consideration for both environment and animal welfare, thus the merino wool used, is of course mulesing free, and comes from South America. The baby alpaca is from Peru, and the cotton is from Egypt.
SNEFNUG is composed by a cotton tube, as the core, in which a fine and neat blend of merino wool and baby alpaca is blown into. Altogether, this gives a strong and at the same time, super soft and exclusive yarn.
SNEFNUG is particularly suitable for baby and children’s knitwear, as well as for the current trend of oversize knitwear on big needles for adults, as sweaters, cardigans, scarfs, and hats.
The recommended needle size is 4.0 - 6.0 mm and the recommended gauge is 12-16 sts per 10 cm and approx. 24 rows in height. The length is 110 meters per one skein of 50 grams.
It is recommended to HAND WASH the finished work, using a wool detergent, and lay it flat to dry.
When washing in the machine, the finished work can shrink up to 7%, but will stretch again in use. It is recommended to knit ribbing edges a little firm and slightly narrower, as these likewise will stretch in use.
