Lang Rosalba

Gradient yarns have never been more popular among knitters. They take the guesswork out of trying to match colours, and ensure that you’re not blending colours that are just not going show up together. With that in mind, Lang Yarns have created an exquisite new chunky wool and nylon blend with sublime colour shifts that is sure to be a hit with knitters and crocheters alike.

Rosalba is an outstandingly soft, coulourful yarn for accessories. This extra fine, bright merino wool is enveloped in a thin transparent nylon mesh.

Rosalba knits up beautifully, and with 300 meters per ball, one ball is all you need to knit an infinity scarf or shawlette!

This extremely soft, oh so fleecy yarn is comprised of 72% extra fine merino and 28% nylon for strength and durability.

Lang Yarns are synonymous with quality and Rosalba definitely fits that bill.  As soon as you see the vibrant shades and get your hands on the cloud like ball you will be grabbing one in every colour!

 

 

Rosalba is perfect for any patterns that require a gradual colour shift. The best thing about Rosalba is you get all those eye popping colours in one ball, so you’re not faced with hours of weaving in ends when you’ve completed your project!

This fast and fashionable Shawl and Snood Pattern knits out of one ball and is available for purchase at local yarn shops across the country. Knit one up quickly for a last minute gift, or package up the pattern and a ball of Rosalba for the knitter on your gift list. Either way, the recipient is sure to be delighted!

Be sure to ask about Rosalba and all other fine yarns from Lang Yarns at your favourite LYS. And be sure to post any pictures of your creations with Rosalba. We love seeing what becomes of our yarns!

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!
