Handsome Yarn, Softer Than It Looks

Intrigued by the colors, I purchased some Lauca to knit a cowl for my niece. I enjoyed knitting with it so much that I purchased more yarn for a wrap for my sister. I loved the way it worked with the lace pattern, so I ordered even more Lauca for myself. I guess you could say I'm a fan of this yarn!

The online photo makes Lauca look rustic, if not a little coarse, but it is soft with a lovely hand and good weight. It is a good quality yarn, comfortably warm with beautiful colors. Addi Turbo needles made for quick knitting but very slick and easy to drop stitches - I switched to wooden needles which helped immensely.

I think Lauca would make an attractive sweater or blanket, too. It certainly exceeded my expectations and I am very pleased with the results!

            This yarn knit up into a lovely hat. The definition was good and there was little stretching or mis-shaping. For the price, can't be beat.

              I'm making a vest with this yarn. The striping is working up nicely, I love the colors. It has nice body and structure, but is not itchy. Might not be soft enough for directly against skin, but over a shirt should be fine.
