Greina by Lang

Here's another great three-season yarn from Lang. Introduced in the spring, Greina is a marvelous mix of fibers: wool, viscose, linen and acrylic. It's an evenly spun worsted weight, but the linen gives it a slightly slubby look, and the viscose (rayon) a little shine. This makes it very attractive for men's garments, because it has that slightly uneven, rugged look that men like. It's easy to knit and soft to the touch, but has more body than the standard superwash merino. That means it takes well to stitch patterning and cables, as it holds its shape well. There are patterns for Greina in the more recent Fatto a Mano books (2012-2013) but you can use it for any pattern calling for 5 st to the inch.

  • 40% acrylic, 30% Merino wool, 18% Viscose, 12% Linen
  • 20 stitches & 28 rows = 4 inches on US 7 needles (4.5 mm)
  • 50 gram ball is about 162 yards (105m)
  • Machine wash warm, gentle, use detergent for fine wash, dry flat
