Lanivendole

A Stormy Blend

  • This yarn was designed to easily match and highlight the more composite hand-dyed yarns in Lanivendole's range. They chose grey and undyed hues, because there’s never enough!

    This is the workhorse base, a soft and crimpy 2 ply fingering weight blend of Italian Brogna wool with two different natural colours of Alpaca for the shades of grey.

    Spun in a small, local mill, 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.

    LUCE – light – is obtained with grey alpaca, and OMBRA – shadow – is obtained with black alpaca.

    70% Italian Brogna Wool
    30% Italian Alpaca

  • 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.
