Explore the raw beauty of three divine undyed fibre options: an Alpaca Blend, a Sock Yarn and Pure Wool. With yarn weights ranging from Fingering to Chunky across the collection, this new premium series awaits the artistry of hand dyers. ​

The Scheepjes Nakid Series includes six different yarns in three undyed fibre blends. Aimed at hand dyers, it is equally suitable for those who love to knit and crochet with natural shades. The attractive appearance of the yarns will vary slightly due to the natural fibre composition.

In this blog, you'll find a guide on how to dye Scheepjes Nakid yarn yourself.

Alpaca / Wool

The first fibre blend is an Alpaca/Wool mix (20% Alpaca, 80% Wool), which comes in two weights, Undyed Alpaca Blend DK Weight and Undyed Alpaca Blend Chunky. Warm and very soft, it’s suitable for garments and accessories such as hats and scarves.

About Basolan Wool

This treatment process makes the wool shrink resistant and enables dye to penetrate the fibres deeper, producing a more intense depth and brightness of colour. Hand dyers can achieve vibrant results with minimal shrinkage.

Sock Yarn

The range also includes Undyed Sock Yarn (75% Superwash Wool, 25% Nylon). Breathable and warm due to the natural properties of wool, it also has the resilience and easy-care qualities that result from the addition of nylon. It is machine- washable, so makes a practical choice for socks. The yarn is also suitable for other projects such as shawls and garments.
