Gepard - Wild and soft
Wild and soft from Gepard is a soft and elastic yarn with a magical luster where the properties of merino wool and silk complement each other. The yarn is excellent for knitting on its own and together with other yarn qualities.
Wild and soft consists of 60% merino wool and 40% tussah silk, which is a type of silk where the caterpillar has had time to come out of its cocoon before the silk is harvested and thus the caterpillar is allowed to live. The merino wool is of course muesling-free.

- Gauge 26-28 stitches.
- Recommended knitting needles: 2.5-3.5 mm.
- Weight / length: 50 grams = approx. 240 m.
- The work should be hand washed in cold water with wool detergent and then dried flat.
The yarn is spun and dyed in Italy.

About color rendering
We always do our utmost to ensure that the product images reproduce the colors correctly. However, monitors display colors differently, some may display them deeper and stronger while others brighter. We therefore cannot guarantee that the pictures show the exact color of the yarn. You can always email us at email@example.com if you want to see more pictures.
Wash and care
This yarn is best washed by hand with wool detergent, for example Eucalan. Leave the garment in a tub with about 4 liters of water together with a teaspoon of wool detergent. Then gently squeeze out the water and place the garment on a towel. Roll the towel with the garment and squeeze out the water.
If you have a washing machine that can run a spin-only program, you can use this instead of squeezing out the water in a towel. If you are unsure about your washing machine, we recommend that you knit a test patch that you wash and spin to see how the yarn and fabric behave.
Let the garment dry flat, preferably on a towel.
