  • LAMB is an exquisite quality of Merino Lambswool twined together with Mulberry Silk.  A dreamy unity of two gorgeous fibres.

    We love this light fingering for baby clothes, shawls and lightweight, but warm garments. We have knit it up on needles from 2mm to 3.75mm (US 0 - 5) and are thrilled with the results.

    A whopping 533m per 100g hank - it goes a very long way!

    We find LAMB to be a softer and finer version of einrum's beautiful E, and L yarns which are a blend of Icelandic wool with Mulberry Silk which still retails its rustic, crunchy and minimally processed (natural) charm. Colourways are tonal instead of flat, and the silk adds yet more depth, and textural interest as well as strength.

    This yarn is airy and light - such a pleasure to work with! And we adore every single stunning colourway.

    LAMB yarn is made in Denmark at Henrichsen’s Uldspinderi, a small family-owned business in north Jutland, now run by the 5th generation.

    Silk is one of nature‘s strongest threads and is known for its softness and a special shimmer (caused by light reflecting from the prism formed fibres of the silk). Silk is naturally absorbent and wicks moisture away from the body. Garments made of silk keep an even temperature on the body, both in cold and warm climate. 

    These two natural threads, wool and silk are twined together their positive qualities are joined to keep the body warm and dry and the resulting yarn is both strong and soft. The yarn is light and airy with an even texture.

    A TALE OF TWO THREADS

    The Icelandic word “einrúm” to us signifies privacy for creation – a space that opens up in the mind of a creative person, a space that opens up between the individual who creates and the thing that is created.

    einrúm is a product of history and memories: a product of two different worlds, two different threads. The einrúm yarn is spun from Icelandic wool and Thai mulberry silk. I wanted to show the unique characteristics of the Icelandic wool give it a good boost and modernise it. Thai women in rural areas produce silk in their backyards for their own use and as extra income for the family. The two very different threads, wool and silk, are both natural products and both have insulating qualities

    Since I learned to knit I have been fascinated by the fact that you can „produce“ your garment yourself and at the same time enjoy every minute of the time that it takes to knit and subsequently wear and enjoy the garment for a long time.  It is fascinating to choose the project and the material, tackle the task of transferring an idea, which is on a printed knitting pattern, to a real thing made from the thread, find a peace of mind in the rhythm of hundreds of stitches forming the garment, take pleasure in having finished the project and having made a garment that you can proudly use or give to someone special. 

    This is the essence of einrúm design. These are patterns of simple, beautiful and modern garments where craftsmanship, pleasure and challenge are a part of the creating process which we hope you enjoy with us.
