This is the yarn for those who want to strip everything back. Naked Skeinz is a range that has been designed to let you unleash your creativity. Naked Skeinz are yarns that are truly naked, undyed, unbleached, packed in simple skeins ready for you to dress them up with your own colour & personality.
These yarns are not bulked - which is occurs during either the dying process or the yarn is steamed if they are sold as natural shades. We recommend either steaming or soaking your Naked Skeinz yarns and drying thoroughly before knitting them undyed to achieve the most accurate gauge and best results.
Knitting with Naked yarns
Naked Yarn is fresh from the mill in an undyed un-bulked state which makes it appear thinner than its stated description.
If you are knitting this yarn as is (without dyeing first) we recommend ‘bulking’ before you cast on.
-Untwist hank (but do not cut ties) and soak in cold water until soaked through (approx. 45 mins)
-Squeeze out and dry flat
If you choose to knit this yarn un-bulked we recommend making a gauge swatch on the correct needle size for the yarn according to its description rather than its appearance.
