Laponia is a spongy fantasy yarn with an ondé effect created by a thick slub yarn wrapped in spiral around a base yarn. A voluminous yarn, easy to knit or crochet, with a subtle 3 colour degrade transition in each ball. We propose transforming a few balls of yarn into one of our knitting pattern proposals including long and short jackets, coats with short kimono sleeves or girl’s waistcoats and capes. Knit a soft jacket with an astrakhan appearance and handle using only 5 balls of yarn. To knit a long sleeve sweater size 42 you will need 5 balls.
This yarn fibre composition combines the softness and warmth of the wool with the resistance of the acrylic fibers which will prevent fuzz balls and pills on your clothes.
