Description

Bilum Bataplai is a natural yarn made of luxury fibres. It is wonderfully soft to the touch and a pleasure to knit with.

Absolutely gorgeous gradients. 
Bilum yarns are carefully and lovingly dyed by hand. The process is complex, but worth every moment because this is the only way to ensure that the colours change very slowly with no abrupt colour changes. There are many colour gradient sets and plied yarn cakes available on the market (containing tiny knots where the colours change). With these sets and cakes, the knitted piece is essentially striped: it is possible to see exactly in which row the next colour changed. This is not the case with Bilum yarns, the colour changes are smooth. The dyer and her team in Hungary invested a lot of time to optimize their dying method, which you can clearly see on the cakes!

I want to knit a bigger project, is that possible?
Absolutely. You just have to make sure that you start the second cake with the colour that the first cake ended with. And so on for each additional cake used.

Where do the names of the yarns come from? 
The dyer behind the Bilum label studied linguistics and spent a year in Papua New Guinea, where she studied the language Tok Pisin. All yarn names come from this language. "Slika" means silk in English, "Muli" means lemon, "Pukpuk" is a crocodile, "Muruk" means cassowary (a bird native to New Guinea and NE Australia) and "Loli" is a lollipop.

We put a lot of work in photographing our yarns to represent the colours accurately. However, what you see on your screen depends not only on our work but also on the settings of your display. It is possible that the colours shown on the screen do not exactly match the colours of the yarn. Please be aware of this when ordering.
