Mermaid was one of the first bases I fell in love with dyeing because every colour looks spectacular. It’s a fingering weight yarn spun from 50 % merino and 50 % Mulberry silk. It’s ultra soft, definitely suitable for even the most sensitive, and has a beautiful shine from the silk. The yarn is round and very even, creating a smooth and fine fabric.

All yarns from Sägen are hand dyed by Lotta H Löthgren, using GOTS-certified 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.
