Annika, the fabulous designer of the Schneeflöckchen Hat pattern, is also a fantastic natural dyer. She only works with organic yarns and carefully sourced dye materials. We're so happy to be able to offer a very (very) limited amount of Yarn Kits for Schneeflöckchen, so if you want to knit the pattern in the original yarn, this is your chance!
Annika's Luster Sock DK is a 100% organic German Merino wool yarn. It's sourced, spun and handdyed with natural dyes in Germany. Like all our yarns, it's non-superwash, plastic- and mulesing-free.
The yarn is durable, but soft and has a beautiful bounce and sheen to it, which make it perfect for Schneeflöckchen. We're offering three kits, all with Snow as the main color and these contrasting colors: Fog is a cool blue-grey dyed with indigo and oak galls, Golden Autumn a warm yellow from onion skins, and Pine a soothing green made with indigo and goldenrod.
