Why is it called Balayage? The term comes from the salon industry and refers to a hair colouring technique in which a particular colour gradient is achieved on the hair. This colour gradient principle embodies the colours of Balayage. Colour groups of four colours are designed to work together and can be combined with colours from the other groups to achieve a contrast. The colours are inspired by the variety of colours in Peru and are named after places in Peru.
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 (colour 617 Ishinca). The colour gradient effect is supported within the individual threads and very natural colour accents along the lines of hand dyeing techniques.
Loop also stocks the hand-dyed version of Balayage, which works beautifully mixed with the solid colours.
