The newest addition to the Louhittaren Luola line of yarn, Kytöläinen II is a soft, yet durable 2-ply Finnish Finnsheep light fingering weight yarn. It's the perfect choice for weaving and knitting. The fine sheen of the combed Finnsheep wool, with an elegant drape, yields luxurious shawls, accessories, knitted sweaters and jackets.
Louhittaren Luola is a Finnish dyehouse, known for their hand-painted skeins with gorgeous, striking colors. Their artistry with hand-dyed yarns is relatively unmatched in Finland, and we are extremely proud to be able to promote their craft both in Finland and around the world.
*As each skein is a piece of hand-painted art, there are no identical skeins. It is recommended that for larger projects in the same color, you should knit in stripes, alternating skeins every 2 rows.

Välillä lanka oli todella ohutta, pelko ettei kestä katkeamatta. Muuten ok.

I am very pleased with my order and especially with the kindness of the women who processed this order ! They were kind enough to wind the skein into a cake upon my request even though they were very busy ! I am very grateful for that act of kindness . I have plans to make a spring shawl with my yarn, it feels rustic and strong and I love it .Thank you again . Monica PS ; I have since gotten a swift and ball winder !!!
