The heaviest version of Louhittaren Luola's most popular wool blend yarn, Väinämöinen, the soft & durable Väinämöinen DK is suited for socks, mittens, hats, scarves, sweaters, and more. Väinämöinen is named after a mythical character in “Kalevala,” one of the most significant works of Finnish literature.
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 other row.
