Artisanal yarns and knitting instructions
Alpaca and angora yarns
Ruukki Kehräämö's yarn selection includes a variety of alpaca and angora yarns. Our yarn is made only from undyed alpaca and angora rabbit fibers. Alpaca fiber comes to the spinning mill from Finland, Holland and Ireland. We only buy Angora fur from Finnish producers.
Some of the threads are spun with a small amount of wild silk. The Kalahari wild silk is the only free-living wild silk butterfly. The cocoons left behind by these butterflies are collected from the Kalahari desert. In Finland, silk is dyed with natural dyes.
Ruukki Kehräämö's wild silk blend yarns, born as a result of product development work, are a unique product family, the likes of which are not produced by anyone else in the world. The colors of the threads are created naturally from different colored alpaca and/or angora fibers, as well as from wild silk dyed with natural substances. The fibers are mixed at the beginning of the production process in a way that no one else uses.
This unique production process enables color slides, optical color mixing and the production of yarn with a very vivid surface. The end result is a yarn that is impossible to produce by dyeing or in large-scale industrial production.
Our production volumes are small. Our goal is not mass production, but we invest in quality. Each batch of yarn is a unique work of art that is created as a result of creative work.
Our artisan yarns are the high-end products of the yarn market. The strengths of the yarn qualities in the selections remain in a certain range, but there is no permanent color chart. Each lot is unique.
So that charming yarns don't just remain treasures in the yarn basket, we offer our customers knitting instructions designed for Ruukkin Kehräämö yarns.
Our knitting instructions are adaptable. The same instructions are also suitable for several different threads. The professionally written knitting instructions are clear and tested. The clothes come in many sizes.
You can buy the instructions in the shop as printed, beautifully illustrated booklets or digitally in our online store.
