The long and comfortable Naava cardigan is knitted with two yarns.

Naava is a classic and timeless cardigan. The raglan-sleeved basic jacket will be enough fun for years to come. Naava's model is uncomplicated and relaxed, but because of its luxurious material it is nevertheless very special. Descriptively, the jacket was named Naava. It's like the quiet peace of our disappearing primeval forests. A little rough and shaggy, but so very precious in all his everyday life.

The narrow and straight hem of the Naava jacket is knitted in one piece up to the arms. Pockets that are subsequently embedded are knitted into the hem. The sleeves are knitted with double pointed needles or a long circular needle, looping. Finally, at the top, the pieces are connected.

The jacket is knitted from sweetly soft and fluffy Suri alpaca yarn together with thin single-strand Alpaca/Wild silk. With combinations of different colors, you can create a wonderfully mottled knitted surface according to your own taste. The jacket is finished with lovely wooden buttons.

Sizes: XS-SML-XL

Materials:


Thread flow:
Suri Alpaca 250-300-350-400-400 g
Alpaca/Wild silk 200-250-300-300-350 g

Please note that the strength of Alpaca/Wild silk varies slightly from color to color. That's why the skeins of some colors have more yarn per meter than other colors. From the point of view of the instructions and knitting, this is irrelevant. The yarn flow is defined so that there is enough yarn in all colors. From the thinnest threads, depending on the type of handwork, one skein may be left over. Full and unopened skeins can be returned.

Needles: 5 mm and 4.5 mm circular needles, length 80 cm and double pointed needles 5 mm and 4.5 mm.
Density: 16 sts = 10 cm stockinette stitch on thicker needles, knitted together with both yarns.
Other accessories: 7 buttons and loop markers.

Garment dimensions:
Full length in the middle of the back 91-94-95-96-98 cm.
Body and hem circumference when the jacket is closed 98-106-114-122-130 cm.
Inner sleeve length 48-49-49-50-51 cm.

Note! The measurements are the measurements of the finished garment after wetting/wetting. Getting wet stretches the overall length of the coat by 5-7 cm. Elongation is taken into account in the dimensions of the formula.

Choose a size that is 10-20 cm bigger than your own chest circumference. The model pieces in the pictures are knitted in size S and the model size is 36. Size XS is suitable for a teenage child and corresponds to sizes 152-164 cm.

The instructions are delivered to you as a downloadable print version. You can buy printed instructions in the shop.

Alpaca and angora yarns

Ruukki Kehräämö's yarn selection includes a variety of alpaca and angora yarns. Our yarn is made only from undyed alpaca and angora rabbit fibers. Alpaca fiber comes to the spinning mill from Finland, Holland and Ireland. We only buy Angora fur from Finnish producers.

Some of the threads are spun with a small amount of wild silk. The Kalahari wild silk is the only free-living wild silk butterfly. The cocoons left behind by these butterflies are collected from the Kalahari desert. In Finland, silk is dyed with natural dyes.

Ruukki Kehräämö's wild silk blend yarns, born as a result of product development work, are a unique product family, the likes of which are not produced by anyone else in the world. The colors of the threads are created naturally from different colored alpaca and/or angora fibers, as well as from wild silk dyed with natural substances. The fibers are mixed at the beginning of the production process in a way that no one else uses.

This unique production process enables color slides, optical color mixing and the production of yarn with a very vivid surface. The end result is a yarn that is impossible to produce by dyeing or in large-scale industrial production.

Our production volumes are small. Our goal is not mass production, but we invest in quality. Each batch of yarn is a unique work of art that is created as a result of creative work.

Our artisan yarns are the high-end products of the yarn market. The strengths of the yarn qualities in the selections remain in a certain range, but there is no permanent color chart. Each lot is unique.

Knitting instructions

So that charming yarns don't just remain treasures in the yarn basket, we offer our customers knitting instructions designed for Ruukkin Kehräämö yarns.

Our knitting instructions are adaptable. The same instructions are also suitable for several different threads. The professionally written knitting instructions are clear and tested. The clothes come in many sizes.

You can buy the instructions in the shop as printed, beautifully illustrated booklets or digitally in our online store.

The instructions are delivered to you digitally, as a downloadable print version, which you can print if you wish.

You will receive a link to the instructions immediately after payment.

1. Why don't we have any colorful knit wear?

Ruukkin Kehräämö's Alpaca Royal fiber is undyed. Each color is the true color of the original wool producing animal. Altogether, there are 22 basic colors of alpacas. This guarantees a wide and stunningly beautiful color palette.

Non-dyeing is an advantage of fiber, yarn and, above all, the finished knit. Harsh chemical processes; bleaching, dyeing, post-treatments and washing wear down the fibers and break their surface structure. The properties of the natural, minimally processed alpaca fiber are transferred directly to the garment. That's why Ruukkin Kehräämö's knitwear is not dyed.

When the knit reaches the end of its life cycle, the fiber continues its life. Undyed, non-chemically treated alpaca fiber is 100% biodegradable. Knitwear can also be torn back into fibers and recycled for reuse.

2. Why do our products have a delivery fee?

We want you not to make a hasty purchase decision, but to be sure of your choice when ordering the product. In Finland, up to 50% of e-commerce orders are returned. Postage has been found to significantly reduce the number of returns.

On average, the largest emissions of clothes sold in an online store come from the product itself (~83%), but transportation produces 14% of the emissions. If the product is returned, the transport emissions are doubled.

So we want to act responsibly both towards our customers and the environment. When you buy less, carefully and with better quality, the environment and your wallet will thank you.

3. Why don't we have discount campaigns?

We do not support fast fashion and quick purchase decisions. FOMO (Fear of missing out) is a commonly used method in marketing to get a customer to buy products that they don't necessarily need.

By limiting the offer to a certain time, consumers are tempted to make rash purchase decisions. Instead, we want you to be satisfied with your purchases from us and to use our products for a long time. You can always count on us to have the product at the same price, whether you make your purchase on Black Friday or a normal Sunday morning.

3. How can we guarantee that the yarn coming from Peru is responsibly produced?

In the mountains of Peru, alpaca breeding is the main livelihood. Up to 85% of the native population's income comes from selling alpaca wool. By buying wool from certain farms, we can ensure that the owner of the farm receives reasonable compensation for his work. Alpacas play an important role in breaking the cycle of poverty.

Ruukkin Kehräämö only uses high-quality and ethically produced, RAS-marked (Responsible Alpaca Standard) alpaca wool. Breeders belonging to Peruvian indigenous peoples tend their small herds with respect for nature. The organization we support, Quechua Benefit , helps the indigenous population to take care of the well-being of both the alpacas and their families.

For each batch of yarn that arrives at Ruukki Kehräämö, the fibers are collected separately from local small farms. Every fiber can be traced back to the premises and even to the animal. Growers get double the price for Alpaca Royal fiber compared to coarser fibers.

4. How can we guarantee that neither the angora rabbits nor the alpacas suffer during the wool picking?

Alpaca and angora rabbit are wool producing animals. They have been bred to produce wool, like merino sheep. Not shearing a wool-producing animal is harmful to the animal, because the wool does not stop growing at a certain length, but long and tangled wool makes it difficult for the animal to move and worsens hygiene.

We buy wool from angora rabbits only from domestic farms, where the spinning takes place under the conditions of the animals and stress-free. You can watch our partner Villiniity's coiling video and get to know angora rabbits in our blog post .

The Alpaca wool we use for our yarns comes mainly from domestic farms. We buy the black alpaca fiber from the Dutch Tienda Molino alpaca farm .

Alpaca wool must be collected with professional skill and as stress-free as possible for the alpaca and as gently as possible. Australian professional Chris Williams arrives in Finland in the spring and rolls the alpacas quickly and painlessly.
