Kremke Soul Wool – Bébé Soft Wash
You are dreaming of a superwash wool that would not be harmful to the environment or your skin? Kremke Soul Wool’s Bébé Soft Wash could well be the answer to your search!
This 100% merino wool has indeed been superwash treated, but WITHOUT the use of chlorine. The classical superwash treatments involve this chemical agent, as well as a resin to coat the fibers and prevent them from felting. On the contrary, Kremke has chosen to use the plasma technology, which is enzyme-based. It also makes the yarn more resistant to friction, but is less toxic for the environment. And, this way, the yarn can also meet the “easy care”, “superwash” et “machine washable” standards of the Woolmark Company.
Moreover, the Bébé Soft Wash yarn is spun from 21/22 microns fibers, which is very fine. And the finer the fiber, the softer the yarn! Another good thing: this fiber comes from South American farms that are mulesing-free.

Kremke’s Bébé Soft Wash in a nutshell: an ultra-soft and smooth yarn, with a beautiful stitch definition and in a large range of colours. Plus, it has been designed to be resistant and easy to care, but not by overlooking the environmental concerns and skin sensitivity problems.
All this makes it a perfect yarn to knit baby clothes, but not only! Indeed, if several of our patterns for the small ones, such as Lil Kimonos, Frozen or Semis de Printemps, will work beautifully with this yarn, nothing stops you from using it to knit a pompomed Nival or a pretty pair of Coralie’s Mitts. In fact, there are some really nice creations of all type to be admired on the Ravelry page of this yarn!
