Kremke Soul Wool – Lazy Linen
Looking for the most polyvalent yarn, that can become a bigger piece or a pair of socks, all the while being 100% natural? You just found it! With their Lazy Linen, Kremke Soul Wool gives you the possibility to do everything with one yarn!
This original blend is indeed made of 80% wool and 20% hemp and has at first been designed (and tested) as a sock yarn… Yet, when its designer saw the beautiful drape it acquired washing after washing, she thought it was a shame to limit it to this type of projects. Actually, knitting this yarn will give you beautiful sweaters and cardigans, or even shawls!
Warm despite its finesse, this yarn makes easy-to-wear garments and accessories that will follow you through every season. Whether you need a little something to put over your summer dress in the evening, or to layer the rest of the year, you won’t be able to put it back in your dressing room!
Plus, its soft colours, subtly heathered thanks to the hemp fiber, are a real treat for the eyes… And will easily find a place in any wardrobe.

And is there something more elegant than matching hand-knitted socks with a hand-knitted sweater or cardigan? Actually, while we talk about cardigans… We may well knit a Trellis for us or for our girl with it… What about you?
