What a wonderful yarn, just perfect for summer and year round wear! Casino is a cotton/synthetic blend, embellished with the tiniest metallic thread that gives a subtle shimmer to the yarn. It has lots of body too, great for openwork, with cotton softness.

There are beautiful patterns for Casino in the new Fatto a Mano 197 and 198: everything from lacy pullovers to cardigans and tops. Knit a simple top to wear on its own all summer, then under a jacket for work the rest of the year!

50g is about 180 yards (165m). 25 st & 32 rows = 4" on US 5-6 (3.5-4 mm) needles

Machine wash warm, dry flat.
Bomull Sport Weight Cotton Fine sport weight mercerized cotton soft enough for babies and great for kids. A wonderful crochet yarn--it's imported from Norway.This is a premium quality product that's so soft you won't believe it! A beautiful array of colors.

This cotton is great for all sorts of projects: garments, fine gauge color work, a great choice for amigurumi, either knit or crochet. Use an "E" hook for best results with crochet. Why not whip up some face cloths and towels to have on hand for last minute hostess gifts?

Sansibar, by Lang

What a gorgeous yarn, and so disappointing that it is now discontinued but of course that means a great bargain for you! Once again the masters at Lang have proven they are the best when it comes to blending fibers: Sansibar is a single ply wool blend, with an engaging shine from the viscose, and strength from the nylon. As usual, the Lang colors are striking and yet balanced, and so appealing. This yarn is well suited to using by itself, or combined with another yarn. Use it for any pattern asking for a sport weight wool.

  • 65% Wool, 21% Nylon, 14% Viscose (Rayon)
  • 26 stitches and 34 rows to 4" on US 5-6 needles (3.5-4 mm)

Filo
by Lang

Filo is a solid cotton core, wrapped with shiny nylon, giving both comfort in warm weather plus just a hint of glitz. The main difference from Amalfi is a smaller gauge, which provides a lot more versatility for Filo.

It has a lot of body to it, so it looks like shiny silk without all the drapey, saggy-ness of silk. It gets a bit softer when washed, but is still firm enough to hold the design features of more structured patterns. At the same time it will produce a great lacy fabric!

  • 75% combed Cotton, 24% Nylon
  • 25 stitches & 34 rows = 4 inches
  • US 3-4 needles (3-3.5 mm)
  • 50 gram ball is about 220 yards (200m)
  • Machine wash gentle, dry flat, do not use fabric softener
  • Woman's medium (36") long sleeved pullover takes approximately 300 g (6 balls)
Merino 130 Compact
A very, very different merino yarn! This is super-fine merino spun in an extra tight twist, with an anti-felting finish, and dyed in all those beautiful Lang colors. This is a sport weight yarn that displays unsurpassed stitch definition. And so soft next to the skin. Merino 130 Compact originally sold for $14.00 per ball.

We suspect that this yarn did not sell well in the US because of the smaller needle size required. But if you want an heirloom project, this yarn is perfect. We have limited quantities of certain colors, so order soon.

  • 100% merino wool
  • 50g ball = about 142 yd (130 m)
  • 23 st to 4" on US 4-5 needles
  • Machine or hand wash warm, lay flat to dry, or dry clean (although personally I would hand wash). Do not use fabric softener.
