This yarn is just luscious and light. Light to wear, and voluminous enough to take a US 10 needle in order to knit a worsted gauge.
Vivienne is a knitted cord, 95% merino with just enough nylon to add strength and durability. This construction adds loft, stitch definition, and resists pilling.
Of course, the Lang colors are beautifully clean and true, and right off the runway. Even the palest colors have impact, and every one will show off your stitchery.
