Di Gilpin Lalland
Truly one of our favorite yarns in our well stocked San Francisco Bay Area yarn store.
Lalland is spun from 100% Scottish Lambswool. This signature yarn is created with a firm twist, to give wonderful stitch definition with a lovely vintage look.
The proprietary double twist is made by plying 2 x 2 threads separately and then twisting them together to give a crinkle to the wool. This means stockinette is rendered flatly and smoothly, while texture jumps out of the fabric.
Lalland is spun in Scotland in a cashmere mill. The mill equipment requires that the fiber have the same micron count as cashmere, which explains this yarn's incredible next-to-skin softness. It does not pill and wears really well.
Di Gilpin is a truly unique yarn company because they not only produce yarn but are “croft to couture”. They employ 90 highly-skilled home-knitters based across Scotland. They have a core team, who live within a 15-mile radius, to create the one-off pieces and special commissions desired by private clients, fashion designers and the catwalk. Some of their big name clients include Nike and Topshop Unique. We are proud to carry Lalland, their sport weight yarn, in our Bay Area yarn store.
