FADO prêt-à-teindre ("ready-to-dye") is an eco-friendly, 100% natural, untreated, undyed yarn made entirely of wool from 2 iconic breeds of Merino sheep. Arles Merino ("Mérinos d'Arles"), naturally off-white, raised in the Crau plain in Provence; Black merino from Portugal, naturally dark brown, bred in the province of Alentejo in southern Portugal, but also implanted by Fonty and the association Lainamac within farms in the creuse region of France. This project aims to develop the wool sector of the Massif Central, while minimizing the ecological impacts linked to transport.

The result is breathtaking : by varying the mixtures of the 2 fleeces, and without any pigment or additional treatment, Fonty obtains colors ranging from off-white (660) to dark brown (664) via 3 browns light (661), medium (662), and strong (663).

FADO prêt-à-teindre is a carded yarn twisted in 3 strands, bulky and supple, pleasant to the touch, which is knitted with # 5 needles. Wash by hand, preferably with organic soap, and dry flat. Like all untreated natural yarns, it has the particularity of softening with successive washes. The same yarn is available in a 50g ball in the FADO range.

FADO prêt-à-teindre yarn in a skein is available in 2 colors: FADO prêt-à-teindre 660 (presented in this sheet) but also FADO prêt-à-teindre 0661, a little bit darker.

The 100g yarn skein of FADO prêt-à-teindre 0660 is proposed non-degreased, non-softened, non-vaporized. If you would like those processings to be carried out in addition, please contact us.
