The Balayage yarn was the product of the idea to develop a high-quality yarn in accordance with a specific colour concept. Pacuali wanted to create colours that provide unlimited creative options and flow harmoniously into one another, almost as if dyed by hand. This gave rise to a yarn that is excellent for shawls but, of course, for any other knitting project too, and is particularly well suited to colour techniques such as jacquard or Fair Isle.

A well-known designer, Melanie Berg, @Mairlynd, contributed to the development of this yarn concept from the beginning. Important key skills such as her instinct for colours and talent for creating appealing colour palettes together with our expertise in producing high-quality and exclusive yarns, are therefore combined in one yarn: Balayage.
Balayage is made from 80% baby alpaca and 20% virgin wool, organic merino in extra-fine 21.5 micron, free from mulesing, of course.


The unique nature of the yarn, i.e. the mixture of white organic merino wool fibres with white and grey baby alpaca wool, creates a mottled grey tone. The colour gradient effect is supported within the individual threads and very natural colour accents along the lines of hand dyeing techniques.
