vintage Lineapiu wool 50g
There is nothing better for me, than coming across a genuinely interesting vintage yarn. When they're made for fashion textiles, I wonder if they were machine knitted, or woven and what the fabric ultimately looked like. Often the yarns are created with these production methods in mind.
Here, very fine wool has been cut and intertwined with another protein yarn - possibly cashmere... the result is super soft, light weight yet dk-like thickness.
Perfectly suited to all types of weaving, and soft enough to go into garments. An approx 6ply thickness equivalent but the yarn is spun more like we expect from mohair so it has lower density.
