Symfonie Terra Yarn is the rockstar among the hand-dyed wool yarn in the Symfonie range. Terra's versatility shines through its adaptability to a vast range of projects – it's not just for socks; it's for every fine yarn creation imaginable.
Only the highest quality of wool is selected for the Terra line, ensuring a premium crafting experience and end product. This superior Merino wool is renowned for its exceptional softness, providing a luxurious feel against the skin. But despite its tenderness, Terra wool is reinforced with 25 % Nylon for added durability, making it suitable for high-use items like socks, sweaters and pants, gloves, and beanies.
Perfectly balanced for versatility, this fine, yet machine-washable Merino wool is adaptable to many knitting and crocheting projects, including Fair Isle or Jacquard colorwork. The yarn's fingering weight is perfect for crafting delicate and detailed work, from ethereal shawls to complex lace patterns. Generous skeins of 415 yards (380 meters) provide ample yarn for large projects, minimizing the need for multiple joins and ensuring continuity in color and texture.
Our Tip: Use two threads of this fingering weight yarn for warm winter projects like cardigans, scarves, or cowls.
Each project knitted or crocheted with Terra yarn brings out the rich, hand-dyed hues and the natural softness of Merino wool, making your creations a delight to touch and see.
With a spectrum of 25 meticulously hand-dyed colors, each skein of Terra yarn is a standalone spectacle of color craftsmanship, enabling crafters to paint with yarn. The dyeing process with natural colors produces rich, vivid hues that do not fade quickly, giving knitters and crocheters long-lasting beauty in their creations. Each batch of Terra yarn passes through the hands of artisans, ensuring high-quality, hand-dyed wool skeins that support traditional dyeing techniques.
The yarn's superb color blending makes it ideal for intricate colorwork techniques, ensuring crisp, clear patterns that celebrate color with every stitch.
Our Tip: For stunning state-of-the-art colorwork, pair a variegated skein such as “Summer Romance” with its coordinating semi-solid shades - “Jodhpur Blue,” “Jasmine,” and “Pink Mauve.”
Merino wool is prized for its luxurious drape and rich texture, making it a favorite for crafting high-quality fashion and accessories.
When it comes to hand-dyed sock yarn, crafters need to be aware that there's a possibility of color bleeding during the first few washes. This is a natural occurrence with many hand-dyed fibers, as the artisanal dyeing process can leave some excess dye on the surface of the yarn. While every effort is made to rinse the yarn thoroughly after dyeing, some residual color can remain. However, the bleeding does not affect the intensity of your chosen color.
To mitigate this, it’s advisable to hand wash your finished items separately in cool water with a gentle wool wash. Adding a splash of vinegar to the rinse water can also help to set the dye. It's part of the journey when working with the rich, vibrant colors that only hand dyed yarn can provide, ensuring each creation is as unique as a fingerprint.
Remember, any minor bleeding doesn’t detract from the yarn’s quality or the brilliance of the finished project; it's simply a hallmark of the hand-dying process that underscores the personalized touch of your handcrafted item.
Though Symfonie Terra wool is listed as sock yarn, it's not just for socks; it's for every fine yarn creation imaginable. Designed with the passionate knitter and crocheter in mind, the Terra yarn range unites durability with a unique aesthetic appeal which makes it ideal for outstanding and resilient hand-knitted or crocheted projects.
