Sankt Martin


“Sankt Martin”

Delivery time: 3-5 days (details in shipping costs)


When the year is nearing it’s end and the days get darker and shorter, I am always looking forward to this tradition that is highly represented in the area where I grew up and where I live right now (Rheinland, Oberbergischer Kreis). On the 11th of November we celebreate St. Martin’s day – and around that day each residential area/school/kindergarten has their own celebration of it. All the different colors that you can see throughout the skein represent the different lanterns that every kid has, a warm yellow shines through the whole skein representing the light that shines in the darkness, and the dark navy blue represents the dark November night when this procession is usually held.

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 multiple 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.
