ANTIQUE prêt-à-teindre ("ready-to-dye") yarn is made from 100% French sheep wool (mainly Limousin and Texel breeds), mainly from Limousin and the Massif Central.

This nervous fibre gives the ANTIQUE prêt-à-teindre yarn a rustic look typical of a carded yarn. Wools from France have excellent crimp, hence their use, in general, for mattresses (natural spring), for carpets (excellent resistance to crushing) and for clothing (swelling and resistant works). ANTIQUE prêt-à-teindre is thus a classic carded yarn, appreciated for sports sweaters, also widely used for canvas and weaving schools, and finally, well suited to knit work aimed at felting at the end of the knit. It is proposed to be knitted with # 5 needles.

Given the origin of the wool and the rustic manufacturing process, the price of this yarn is very attractive. It is presented in a skein of 100g. The dyed version of this yarn, also presented in 100g skeins, constitutes the ANTIQUE range, with a color chart frank and wide.

Except for voluntary use of its felting properties, ANTIQUE prêt-à-teindre yarn should preferably be washed by hand, with Marseille soap, without spinning, and drying flat.

The 100g yarn skein of ANTIQUE prêt-à-teindre is proposed non-degreased, non-softened, non-vaporized. If you would like those processings to be carried out in addition, please contact us.
