Arwetta Classic Hand Dyed


Arwetta Classic was originally designed as a soft and durable yarn for hand knit children's garments - and today it is still used to create a lot of children's knits. It's also great for shawls and socks; a true allrounder for a great price! 

This variation is handdyed and fabulous. The bright and striking colours are great for fun socks, shawls and kid's wear!

Arwetta Classic is a traditional 4 ply worsted spun yarn, made up of 80% long fibred superwash merino wool and 20% nylon. Nylon is a hard-wearing synthetic fibre, which is often used in yarn. Here it has been added to produce a yarn which is both soft and durable.


  • Fibres: 80% Merino wool (superwash) and 20% nylon
  • One skein: 210m / 50 gram
  • Weight: Light fingering/fingering
  • Needles: 2½-3 mm
  • Tension: 28-32 sts per 10cm
  • Washing: 30 °C in the machine on a wool cycle. (It is always better to hand wash!) Do not put in the dryer, lay flat to dry.
