Sometimes I get to work with some truly beautiful yarns and today is one of those days. Today I am working with Langdale Superwash Aran from Eden Cottage Yarns.
Colorway – Damson
Langdale is a hand dyed superwash 100% merino aran. Langdale aran (named after the Langdales in the Lake District), is a fantastic all-round machine washable pure merino yarn. It comprises of three plies, to make it smooth and soft whilst retaining a bouncy and hard wearing quality. The lovely Victoria from ECY tells me the yarn gets gradually softer with washing. Being a machine washable yarn it is going to be ideal for garments, especially those which are for children or gifts!
The knitty gritty;
100% superwash merino
4.5 – 5.5mm needles
The beautiful deep tones and subtle variegation in this yarn are not done justice by my photo, the yarn is soft to touch and has a great bouncy to it. I can’t say yet what it is going to be, but watch this space.
