Lama Uld 1/2
LAMA ULD is a soft, rustic, and 1-threaded yarn consisting of 50% llama wool and 50% Peruvian Highland Wool.
The length is 100 metres per 50 grams. The recommended gauge is 17-18 sts x 24 rows and the recommended needle size is 4.5-5 mm.
The llama wool’s fibres are an exclusive natural product, lanolin free, light, and strong. The hollow construction of the fibres gives an unusual, good insulation capacity. Therefore, the llama wool is significantly warmer than ordinary sheep wool.
The yarns rustic look, high insulation capacity and strength, makes LAMAULD particularly suitable for classic Nordic sweaters and cardigans, outerwear, and blankets.
The spinning of the yarn entails, that LAMAULD first unfolds completely, when knitted and washed. A knitted and washed swatch is therefore recommended, to get the full impression of the quality, look, and softness of the yarn. Llama wool has naturally very varied lengths of the fibres, which gives surplus fibres in the work process. The majority of these fibres are washed out at the first washes, which makes the result even softer.
50% llama, 50% wool.
