The “NAPOLEON – the cake that conquers the world” colorway was inspired by this yummy traditional Russian-German cake – which is the best cake ever (especially when made by my Oma Walli)! It is called “Napoleon” and I can only imagine that it is called like that, because it is destined to conquer the whole world!! Yes, it really IS this yummy!! 😀

This colorway has a creamy colored base of color and is speckled with browns (the brown dye tends to break, which results in multi-colored speckles and sometimes in tiny splotches of blue or pink, which just adds to the awesomeness of this colorway in my opinion).

The photos have been taken with the colorway dyed on: Witch Hazel


Additional information and care instructions:


Each and every skein is a truly handmade product – from the handdyed skein to the yarnband and label design. We take great care in taking/editing the pictures of our products so they look as close to reality as possible – but please note that these are “catalogue pictures”, we don’t take pictures of each and every single skein of yarn but try to do our best to represent the colorway and it’s varieties in the photos we use (the representation obviously also depends on your screen/computer).


I dye in increments of 2-4 skeins per pot, so please make sure to attach a note with your order if you want to use your yarn for projects that use more than 1 skein per colorway, so I can make sure that those skeins come from the same dye batch. Depending on your gauge, pooling might still be possible, although I try my best to prevent that from happening with my dyeing techniques. I highly recommend alternating your skeins for mulitple skein-projects!


For best results and long wear I recommend handwashing your knitted items – in cold to max. lukewarm water with wool wash. Lay flat to dry.
I am using professional acid dyes and citric acid to dye my yarns (vinegar for stellina yarn bases), but I make sure to soak and wash them with ecological wool wash (Ecover) after the dyes have set and rinse them until the water runs clear before drying. But because of the nature of some dyes (especially reds/ blacks/ turquoise/ blues), “bleeding” of excess dyes is still a possibility.
