The Mineral Tunic Knit Kit


DIY Mineral Tunic knit kit.


I got together with Annick Des Grieux, an amazing French knitwear designer, to produce this DIY knit kit.

Using my mineral-dyed yarns, we came up with this stunning short sleeve tunic. Perfect for the Spring season.

I dye this Merino wool using mineral dyes. These dyes are made from mineral rocks that are ground into a fine powder and used to make my pigments. These same minerals are used in mineral makeup, so this is a perfect yarn for sensitive skin.

These yarns are variegated, so that some of the natural background color of the yarn remains visible, adding depth to the garment.

This Knit Kit includes:

x3 or 4 Yarn Cake of Mineral-dyed 100% Merino – Blue (Lapis Lazuli)
x3 or 4 Yarn Cake of Mineral-dyed 100% Merino – Yellow (Ochre)
x3 or 4 Yarn Cake of Mineral-dyed 100% Merino – Green (Malachite)
x1 Pattern Instructions

The tunic is made using a series of beautiful yet simple stitches, so it would be suitable for beginner and improving knitters.

Knit yourself an amazing garment!
