  • Lanivendole Aestiva

    4 items left

    Aestiva is Lanivendole's first yarn to include plant fibres. It's the perfect yarn for warmer days with 30% unbleached French linen and 70% Abruzzese wool, a native Merino Italian cross-breed. The springiness of the wool balances the linen and makes a relatively soft yarn with a texture and freshness perfect for some lighter garments.

    The linen dyes differently from the wool, creating the most divine colours. We have 13 colours altogether, including Marzapane, which is undyed.

    All Lanivendole's yarns are custom spun in a small mill in Piedmont, Italy, and are non-superwash and nylon free.
