A soft & durable wool blend sock yarn, Väinämöinen is the most popular yarn from the Louhittaren Luola collection. Väinämöinen is the perfect sock yarn for your sock, sweater & Fair Isle knitting projects, and what fun you will have with the vast array of available colors! The Väinämöinen yarn base is named after a mythical character in “Kalevala,” one of the most significant works of Finnish literature.
Louhittaren Luola is a Finnish dyehouse, known for their hand-painted skeins with gorgeous, striking colors. Their artistry with hand-dyed yarns is relatively unmatched in Finland, and we are extremely proud to be able to promote their craft both in Finland and around the world.
*As each skein is a piece of hand-painted art, there are no identical skeins. It is recommended that for larger projects in the same color, you should knit in stripes, alternating skeins every 2 rows.
