CaMaRose - Lamauld
The length is 100 meters per 50 grams. The recommended gauge is 17-18 sts x 24 rows and the recommended needle size is 4.5-5 mm. The llama wool’s fibers are an exclusive natural product, lanolin free, light, and strong. The hollow construction of the fibers gives an unusual, good insulation capacity. Therefore, the llama wool is significantly warmer than ordinary sheep wool.
The yarns rustic look, high insulation capacity and strength, makes LAMAULD ½ particularly suitable for classic Nordic sweaters and cardigans, outerwear, and blankets.
The spinning of the yarn entails, that Lamauld ½ first unfolds completely, when knitted and washed. A knitted and washed swatch is therefore recommended, to get the full impression of the quality, look, and softness of the yarn. Llama wool has naturally very varied lengths of the fibers, which gives surplus fibers in the work process. The majority of these fibers are washed out at the first washes, which makes the result even softer.
LAMAULD ½ from CaMaRose is produced in Peru with consideration for both environment, animal welfare, the local farmers and workers. The high-quality requirements, as well as the consideration for both environment, animals, and people in the production, is the foundation of the collaboration with CaMaRose since 2010.
About color reproduction
We always do our utmost to ensure that the product images reproduce the colors correctly. However, monitors display colors differently, some may display them deeper and stronger while others brighter. We therefore cannot guarantee that the pictures show the exact color of the yarn. You can always email us at email@example.com if you want to see more pictures.
Wash and care
The yarn producer writes that this yarn can be machine washed on a wool program with wool detergent. Please note that this is only the case if you knit with the yarn alone, if you knit together with other yarn qualities, we at Lilla garnbutiken recommend that you wash by hand.
You can of course wash this garment by hand, we then recommend that you wash with wool detergent, for example Eucalan. Leave the garment in a tub with about 4 liters of water together with a teaspoon of wool detergent. Then gently squeeze out the water and place the garment on a towel. Roll the towel with the garment and squeeze out the water.
If you have a washing machine that can run a spin-only program, you can use this instead of squeezing out the water in a towel. If you are unsure about your washing machine, we recommend that you knit a test patch that you wash and spin to see how the yarn and fabric behave.
Let the garment dry flat, preferably on a towel.
