Nature from head to toe. Ideal as a sock yarn, but it would be a pity to limit it to sock projects. Wearing comfort, washability and abrasion resistance make it an all-round yarn for all seasons.

The yarn consists of 60% extra fine merino wool and 40% Tencel. A wonderful plastic-free alternative!

The Tencel® of the Austrian company "Lenzing Fibers" (https://www.lenzing.com/de/produkte/tencel-tm) used in the yarn Balance is their brand name for the material Lyocell.

Lyocell (Tencel) is a regenerated fiber that is 100% biodegradable in a short time.
For its production, wood (in this case eucalyptus) is chopped into small pieces and softened in water.
By adding the non-toxic solvent NMMO, the pulp is dissolved out.
The NMMO is then filtered out of the water almost without residue and used for subsequent production processes.
The EU has awarded this process the "European Award for the Enviroment".

Tencel is breathable, can absorb a great deal of moisture and discharge it directly to the outside, thus preventing the formation of bacteria and odours.
The surface is cool and smooth, which makes it comparable to silk products in terms of daytime comfort and shine.

The fibre is completely biodegradable and in combination with the exceptionally high-quality Merino Extrafine, the raw material cycle of the yarn is closed sustainably.

The production takes place in Germany according to Öko-Tex Standard 100, product class 1 (FI Hohenstein S07-0687 https://atelierzitron.de/inhalte/zertifikat/). The ideal of Atelier Zitron is "Clothing as a second skin", Balance can be worn directly on the skin without hesitation.

You buy an exclusive yarn at a particularly good price/performance ratio, which is only available at dealers hand-picked by Atelier Zitron.

Never before have I received such a wonderfully packed package 💓💓💓
And completely plastic-free with pretty, handwritten card.
Delivery also came even faster than expected, although ordered just before Christmas
This will certainly be the first of many orders - thank you very much 🙏
The wool itself feels great and the colors match the image.
