Paul Klee Sweater ~ 11 skein kit *Sold Out*

This kit contains 9 x 100gram skeins of Yama Merino Linen Singles and 2 x 50gram skeins of Yama KidSilk to knit a similar (not identical!) Paul Klee sweater to mine. The design is by Midori Hirosi. (Please note that the pattern is not included in the kit, it can be purchased via Ravelry.com. Also see my Ravelry project page for notes about my knit.) The pattern calls for 14 to 24 colours but I used less and repeated some in different combinations throughout the yoke design which worked well. There will be plenty left over yarn from the colourwork to use in other projects!

The colourways included are:

4 x Chocolate Bark (Merino Linen Singles ~ this is the MC and will be enough to knit at least a short sleeve sweater for all the sizes offered in the pattern. Most sizes will be able to knit 3 quarter to long sleeves.)

1 x Sea Mist (Variegated Merino Linen Singles)
1 x Sun Kiss (Variegated Merino Linen Singles)
1 x Tidal (Merino Linen Singles)
1 x Maple (Merino Linen Singles)
1 x Conebush (Merino Linen Singles)
1 x Roasted Barley (KidSilk)
1 x Sun-dried Chilli (KidSilk)

Yama Merino Linen Singles is a soft single ply, fingering weight yarn with rustic appeal. The composition is 90% Merino and 10% Linen.

Yama KidSilk is a luxurious South African lace weight yarn consisting of 72% Brushed Kid Mohair 28% Mulberry Silk. Next to skin soft with gorgeous lustre and halo.

Held together, these two yarns work into a soft, romantic fabric perfect for sweaters, shawls and hats.

Also see the Merino Linen Singles and Kidsilk individual listings for more details and colourways.

Dye batches vary, please make sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project. There are also variation within batches, please remember to alternate skeins when working on larger pieces of fabric. Variegated skeins take more effort to produce and are charged for a little extra. The skeins you receive may not be the identical skeins form the photograph.

Care Instructions: Garments can be machine washed on a gentle cycle however I recommend hand washing in cool water. Soak in a wool wash and rinse in clean water with a drop of essential oil. Roll in a towel to get the water out and dry flat.

Note that darker, saturated colourways can give off some residual dye on the hands while knitting, this is called “crocking”, read more about it on the “Care Instructions” page under Info in the main menu.
