BKD Breeze. Handdyed Kid Silk Lace. BKD Yarn.
BKD Breeze is a soft and squishy yarn base giving a beautiful halo to any project as accompanying fibre. If you hold it double or triple it knits up quickly to a luxurious and fashionable mohair sweater. I need 3-4 skeins for an oversized sweater up to XL size. Held double gives endless possibilities for fading, marling or stripes.
NEEDLES: Knit held double on 3 - 6mm needles or use it as a supporting thread to give your projects that special soft glow or halo. Also suitable for lace knitting held single on 2 - 4mm needles. Basically, all wool can be knitted on all needles. The choice is yours, but take time to check your gauge. This is essential.
COLORS: All colors are dyed by me in layers to give it shade and depth using a special method I developed in my home studio in Berlin. Each skein of haddyed yarn is unique, it is hardly possible to replicate the process fully, even when established and repetitive. Therefore, I suggest to order bigger quantities from the same dye lot (listed skeins) or to contact me before ordering if you need bigger quantities.
STABILITY: I am dyeing with professional colors that I mix to a certain ratio for a particular tone, fade or nuance in my studio. These colors are proven and stable over a longer period of time, even after washing. However, be aware that all colored garments, even the industrial ones, fade with time, so some changes are expected, depending on how you care for your garment and how often you wear it.
BLEEDING: I wash my yarn extensively to avoid bleeding, but stay aware it may bleed slightly after first washings until the color is fully exhausted.
CARE: I hand wash my knitted garments with a sprinkle of wool washer. Generally, wool does not require extensive washing as smell does not hold on to the wool fibre. Therefore it is enough to wash it as less as possible, once a year even, or less, and to air it after every wearing. Just place it on a balcony, in the garden or any place with natural air flow and let it air for a while. Please, be aware that mohair silk has almost no memory, so do not stretch garments and accessories made of this fibre more than neccessary.
