The Grundl yarn company has been in the same German family for three generations. Today, it is run by Peter and Martina, and their company ethos is a passion for wool. Grundl Flower Color comes in shades of burnt orange, brown mix and purple mix. The Grundl yarn knits up with flowers at various points in knitting it, so stunning garments can be knitted with this wool, acrylic and polyester blend.
Two balls of Grundl wool will make a medium long scarf; however, for a longer scarf use three balls of Grundl wool. The advantages of using polyester blended with wool are that polyester does not stain easily - it can be washed and it does not wrinkle. Grundl yarn which uses polyester and wool combines the best of both materials in terms of insulation, drape, softness and durability.
Grundl knitting yarns are good value for money
Knitters can knit scarves, hats, sweaters, cardigans and even dresses with Grundl wool at a fraction of the price it would cost to buy the same articles ready made. Grundl wool is very affordable and looks fabulous. The price of wool has fluctuated throughout history, reaching its lowest price in the 30s before hitting a peak in the 50s. However, it's never gone out of fashion, and no matter what the price is, there is always a huge demand for quality wools like Grundl wool with flowers.
Grundl wool is funky and fashionable
Grundl Flower Color produces a very chunky knitted garment. Chunky knits are fun, funky and have always been fashionable. For beginner knitters, Grundl knitting yarns can boost their confidence in knitting as it is an easy material to work with - a scarf or shawl can be knitted in no time at all.
Here at Black Sheep Wools, we prize our Grundl knitting yarns as highly as we prize our knitting customers.
