Lanivendole

A Heavenly Blend

Ask a question
  • The amazing women of Lanivendole claim that this yarn is the "icing on the cake", their pièce de résistance.

    This blend is composed of the finest unbleached milky white cashmere and a naturally light grey untreated and mulesing free merino wool, so that we get a balanced strength and a pearly hue that really makes our hearts dream.

    The "heavenly" cashmere component comes directly from Giulia's own cashmere goats in South Piedmont.

    The fibres are then spun in a small, local mill, where the fibres are minimally processed. The blends are created with both a carding and a combing process before spinning, hence the particularly smooth and regular thread, that will bloom after washing a knitted garment.

    The 2 ply structure provides a perfect thickness for hand knitting, yet maintaining a generous yardage.

    This really is a very very special yarn by Lanivendole!

  • Natural fibres spun from Italy with love...

    Lanivendole literally means “women who sell yarn” in a Florentine dialect.

    Here we make hand-spun yarns, which means that raw fibres are washed, dyed, carded and then spun or braided by ourselves; just like a white canvas on which a painter starts to draw, and afterwards fills with colours and details.

    That is why our yarns have a soul, that shows up when they’re handled and worn, and that is why they actually call out to the person who, observing with attention, is ready to receive one, like all unexpected gift that shall be taken.

    From our hearts, straight to yours.
