Klimt, our yarn made of wool, angora and lamè is back, with a new and bigger colour chart. Klimt composition in detail is as follows: 66% superfine wool, 22% angora, 12% lamè.  It is sold in balls of 25 grams/160 meters.

There is just enough lamè to make you shine, discreetly reflecting the light around  you, without any excess.

We decided to show you the new Klimt with 2 crocheted swatches. The first swatch is worked using the Traditional  Tunisian stitch, in navy stripes, off white and light blue. We used a 5 mm crochet hook. For the second swatch, we opted for some openwork choosing a slightly lacy shell stitch and a 4,5 mm crochet hook.

You might think we chose hooks too big for this yarn, but Klimt needs space to expand all its woolen halo. Moreover, you wouldn’t want to use Klimt for sturdy projects such as home decor items, it’s a yarn best used for garment and wearables, thus the hook/needles and stitch of choice will be determined by that use.

Don’t forget to add your finished project with Klimt to Ravelry, we love to see what you create with Lanecardate yarns!
