Lalland is spun from 100% Scottish Lambswool. This signature yarn is created with a firm twist, to give wonderful stitch definition with a lovely vintage look.
The proprietary double twist is made by plying 2 x 2 threads separately and then twisting them together to give a crinkle to the wool. This means stockinette is rendered flatly and smoothly, while texture jumps out of the fabric.
Lalland is spun in Scotland in a cashmere mill. The mill equipment requires that the fiber have the same micron count as cashmere, which explains this yarn's incredible next-to-skin softness. It does not pill and wears really well.
Use it for:
Sweaters, hats, anything you'd wear close to your skin.
