As seen on the hands of Darude at the Suomi 100 opening party right at midnight on NYE as he ushered Finland into 2017, along with 130,000 partiers at Kansalaistori in Helsinki, the SUOMI 100 – Lapaset by Tiia Litsilä for ILO, are the perfect mittens to show your love of Finland and celebrate Finland’s 100thbirthday throughout the year!
See the SUOMI 100 - Lapaset on Darude at midnight on NYE 2017 HERE!
We’ve created an easy kit, which contains the yarn & the pattern to knit your own pair of SUOMI 100 – Lapaset. Each kit contains two 100g skeins of Louhittaren Luola – Väinämöinen Sport (100g of Sini and 100g of Valkoinen), and the pattern. You will receive a printed pattern (in finnish) in the kit, and we will email a digital PDF of the pattern to you, when your order ships! You can make 2 pairs of mens sized SUOMI 100 – Lapaset with each kit!
Each skein of Väinämöinen Sport is beautifully hand-dyed by Finland’s own Louhittaren Luola dye house. Väinämöinen Sport, is a slightly heavier, 6-ply version of Knitlob’s Lair’s most popular wool blend yarn, Väinämöinen. Väinämöinen is named after a mythical character in “Kalevala,” one of the most significant works of Finnish literature.
