Colourway

 

Light Fe is a very, very soft yarn, spun from 70 % baby alpaca, 20 % silk and 10 % cashmere. It uses light grey baby alpaca so all colours are slightly heathered and muted, which I love. The depth of the shades is just beautiful! Light Fe has 400 m/100 g but behaves like a slightly thinner yarn so look for patterns that call for a fingering to light fingering weight yarn, on needles 2.75-3.5 or so.

All yarns from Sägen are hand dyed by Lotta H Löthgren, using high quality acid dyes. The colourways are named after creatures, entities, details or ideas from folklore and old stories, and Sägen is the Swedish word for a certain kind of folk story. My aim is to create a palette of colours that are just as beautiful on their own as they are to combine, and that knitters and makers can return to over the years.
