Lanivendole is a small yarn company based in Italy; our name literally means: "women who sell yarns”, in Florence dialect, and it sums up who we are, Stefania and Giulia We select the finest and untreated local fibres directly from trusted breeders to develop a production of hand dyed yarns that are minimally processed and have our own unique blend composition. We are proud to gather two rare italian wool breeds, as well as mohair and alpaca; our most precious blends however use our own homegrown cashmere fibre, from Giulia’s goat farm, that ranges around 70 herds on Piemonte hills. For the event we’ll launch some new shades of AURA, our brand new 100% Alpaca yarn from Tuscany. This fine sport buttery yarn is super luscious thanks to the soft fibre content and a subtle halo that make each shade change with light. We have a beloved 100% fine wool from Abruzzo, A Pure and Simple Wool, in a single ply sport weight, that is a dream to knit with, hand dyed in a springy fresh new collection. Also, our fingering bases were born to be mixed and matched as they have the same yardage and gauge: - A Chic Blend that contains 60%wool, 20%alpaca and 20%mohair that we kettle dye in a vibrant palette of semi solid and speckled hues; a fingering weight luscious yarn. - A Stormy Blend composed of 70%italian wool and 30% black/grey/fawn alpaca, in three tones of light oatmeal, light and medium grey, perfect to highlight the handdyed and sister skeins. - A Heavenly Blend is a special treat, made of 50% wool, 25% alpaca and 25% cashmere; the fibre content yields a light greyish beige base that gives a quite special allure to each hand dyed shade.
