Now is the time to start thinking about Spring and Summer knitting. Whether you are getting ready to head south and are looking for some beach knitting, or you’re thinking ahead to your Summer wardrobe, we have two yarns from Lang that are must haves for this Summer.
Milton is colour exemplified! A sport weight self striping, multi-coloured marl comprised of 37% cotton, 36% acrylic and 27% viscose, this winning blend of fibres gives Milton incredible drape, breathability and durability.
And speaking of beach knitting, Team Estelle member Sophie, our stellar Sales Rep in Quebec, kindly sent us this great picture of her vacation knitting using Milton. We aren’t sure which is more beautiful, the panorama or the knitting!Milton is available in a range of eight vibrant shades, each one a true work of art. With 290 meters per ball you can make a baby sweater one ball and a shawl with two balls. Imagine the possibilities!
Lang Pattern Book #252 is the perfect accompaniment for Milton. With these timeless patterns for pullovers, tunics and cardigans, you will look like you just walked off the runway in Paris when you step out wearing your Milton creations.
We touched briefly on Lang Ayumi a while ago but given it’s popularity, we felt it was worth a second mention. Ayumi is a definite must have in any Spring or Summer wardrobe. This delicate, 2-ply, fingering weight cotton has a true European flair reminiscent of catwalks and haute couture.
Ayumi is a light chainette yarn made from high quality Mako cotton. Mako cotton is an Egyptian cotton spun from a long staple fibre to produce a fine, durable, premium quality cotton. Blended with 23% nylon, which adds to the durability of Ayumi, it is then dyed with a degrade gradient effect, which results in an attractive colour transition when knitted up. With eight contemporary colours to choose from, you simply won’t believe your eyes! Best of all, this stunning fingering weight gem packs a massive 700 meters of cotton magic in just one ball!!
Lang has a long standing reputation for high quality, fashion forward patterns and you will not be disappointed with the pattern support for Ayumi. Designer inspired tunics, shawls and scarves to knit with just one and two balls of Ayumi.
Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!
