Beautifully draping Ilmatar byLouhittaren Luola is luxorious and soft 2-ply fingering weight merino wool-silk blend – perfect for your next scrumptious shawl, gorgeous sweater, or cozy baby garment project. Ilmatar is also an excellent choice for lace projects and weaving.
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.
