Description

Tynd Lamauld

Are you a yarn enthusiast, someone who can appreciate the artistry of knitting, and the tactile pleasure of working with exceptional fibers? If so, let us introduce you to TYND LAMAULD, a yarn that promises to take your knitting experience to the next level.

TYND LAMAULD is not just any yarn; it's a work of art in itself. Crafted with meticulous care, this yarn is spun with a single thread, revealing its true beauty and softness when knitted and washed. To fully grasp the marvel of TYND LAMAULD, we recommend knitting and washing a swatch – this is where the magic unfolds.

What sets TYND LAMAULD apart is its unique blend of 50% llama wool and 50% Peruvian Highland wool. The result is a yarn that's both soft and rustic, with fibers that have natural variations in length. These varying fiber lengths might seem like a challenge, but they're actually a hidden treasure. When you knit with TYND LAMAULD, you'll find surplus fibers in your work, which add to its texture and character.

Once you've created your masterpiece and given it that first wash, you'll discover another delightful surprise. Many of those surplus fibers wash out, leaving your creation even softer and cozier than you imagined. It's a yarn that truly gets better with time.

But, as with any love story, there's a twist. TYND LAMAULD, due to its thickness and single-threaded spinning, has a tendency to twist when worked in the round in stockinette stitch with a single strand. It's a characteristic that might require a bit of extra attention, but the end result is well worth the effort.

Now, let's talk specifications. Each 50-gram skein of TYND LAMAULD boasts an impressive 220 meters of yarn. To bring your vision to life, we recommend a gauge of 28 stitches by 40 rows, using needles sized between 2.5 and 3 mm. The possibilities are endless, and the results are bound to be magnificent.

But there's more to TYND LAMAULD than meets the eye. This exceptional yarn is closely related to its sibling, LAMAULD. In fact, two strands of TYND LAMAULD can be used as an alternative to, or alongside, LAMAULD, giving you even more creative freedom.

Now, let's dive into the heart of TYND LAMAULD – the llama wool. These fibers are an exclusive, natural marvel. They're lanolin-free, lightweight, and incredibly robust. Their unique hollow construction lends them superb insulation capabilities. In fact, llama wool is significantly warmer than your average sheep's wool, making it perfect for classic Nordic knitwear, shawls, scarves, baby blankets, and any garment that demands both strength and warmth without added bulk.
