          Comments about Grignasco Knits Loden:

          I am using this yarn to make a jacket type sweater. I love the color and the texture of this yarn, but it is quite scratchy, and I am worried about wearing the jacket without something under it. The service was great, arrived pretty quickly.

            Comments about Grignasco Knits Loden:

            Grignasco wins again. Loden is a great tweed solution. Great for stockinette, but my best choice for an Aran designed vest.. It's just soft enough, yet holds shape beautifully.

            Comments about Grignasco Knits Loden:

            A wonderful worsted weight tweed yarn at a reasonable price. I happened upon their beautiful lilac-colored Loden and it knits up beautifully. It's a little scratchy, but a knit softener removes that issue. Recommend highly!

              Comments about Grignasco Knits Loden:

              The most disappointing aspect is that the color runs!! I finished knitting the skirt and prepped it for blocking. At that point, to see the color run in cool water was disheartening. I rinsed it 12 times to get it to get almost clear water!!
