As the days are slowly starting to get a bit longer, now is the time when knitters and crocheters start thinking about Spring and Summer knitting. Cool cottons and lightweight silks allow our minds to wander off as we dream about trips to the beach and late-night sunsets.
It can be hard to think about Spring and Summer yarns when there is snow all around, but since knit and crochet doesn’t just happen overnight, we need to be one step ahead in order to have the chance to create our fashion statements in time for the warm and sunny weather that awaits us. Speaking of being one step ahead, Lang Yarns is always ahead of the curve when it comes to high quality, fashion forward yarns and designs. We have two new yarns from Lang to tell you about today that are sure to take your mind off winter.
Inspired by flowers and nature, we can’t think of a better name as this luscious blend of fibres blooms beautifully when knit up. Bloom is an earthy blend of 70% cotton, 18% viscose and 12% linen, the perfect blend for plump, lush stitches and a soft, breathable fabric.
Bloom is a long gradient chainette tube that alternates between sections of the soft, subtle cotton/linen blend and the silky, shiny viscose. The matte finish of the cotton and linen contrasts harmoniously with the lustrous sheen of the naturally sourced viscose and the resulting fabric is simply gorgeous.
With ten contemporary colours to choose from that each feature a subtle and long colour transition, you simply won’t believe your eyes! Each 150-gram ball packs an incredible 450 meters, more than enough for an exquisite, one of a kind shawl or stole.
Bloom Booklet Punto 9 has a great collection of patterns for garments and accessories that beautifully showcase Bloom‘s long colour change. With these stunning patterns you will be the envy of all of your friends who will wish they had taken that beginner knitting class when you did!
Mulberry silk is one of the most ancient natural fibres and is the highest quality and most valuable silk on the market. Lang Mulberry Silk is a definite must have for every knitter and crocheter this Spring! This delicate silk spun with a hollow core produces an amazingly soft and smooth fabric with a wonderful sheen.
Mulberry Silk is hands down the number one choice for any season, the excellent wicking properties keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Mulberry Silk also has incredible breathability and adjusts to your body temperature! – do we need to say any more about this wonder-yarn??
