Another great Swiss spun and hand-dyed yarn brought to you by Siidegarte yarns! We’re proud to introduce Siide-Fideel!

This is a worsted spun yarn, three plies (which makes it perfect for any lace projects as well) from equal parts of silk and merino.

This yarn lends itself to so many great projects, like all those beautiful fingering-weight shawls that are so abundant right now. You could even knit a pair of socks of this sock-weight yarn, though we wouldn’t advise you to wear those while trecking … these would be more of your luxurious, loungy footwear.

As always, our names come from our version of Swiss-German: “Fideel” means ‘cheerful“, ‘funny’ and ‘pleasing’ … again, the perfect name for this delightful yarn!

Each single skein of this wonderful yarn has been hand-dyed by us in small batches of ten, with utmost care for the fiber and a true love for beautiful colours. Like with most of our yarns, the current colours are in the semi-solid to almost-solid range, some few colourways could be defined as slightly variegated. As this is such a spring-like yarn, lending itself to warmer-weather projects, we’ve kept the first few colourways in a light colour, adding a few neutrals in the greyisch and fawn range to make combining colours easier.

Our dyeing technique results in colours changes that are not prone to pooling at all. For larger projects though, as with all hand-dyed yarns, we recommend to introduce a new skein while still knitting with the old one – this way, possible slight colour differences from one skein to the other will not be noticeable.

The merino is not super-wash treated, so we recommend hand-washing with good quality yarn wash, as we do for all our yarns.

This yarn is available for custom orders: if you have any special requirements regarding yardage, number of same dyelot skeins or even colour, please do contact us
