We did a round table with Italian independent designers who tested some of Lanecardate yarns and asked their opinions about us, our brands, our yarns, our vision. Here’s what they said.
Valentina Cosciani designed some lovely mittens with our Luxor, told us: “Lanecardate yarns are sophisticated and refined, there is something special in those fibers, it doesn’t matter if we talk about precious ones, like cachemire, or just plain wool. Buying a ball of Lanecardate means spoiling yourself“.
Annalisa Dione, Marsicanusbear on Ravelry, co-founder of the Collettivo maglia 198 desinger group, says: “Lanecardate yarns are beautiful and traceable, it means they care about the environment and people’s health“.
Emma Fassio, a star between Italian independent designers, tells us about her favourites: “Colours and fibers are fascinating, I find them inspiring. My favourite ones are Lamora and Donegal, for their composition and for their hand“.
Maria Modeo, Round on Ravelry, has a thing for shawls and hats (look at the one she created for our Donegal): “I tested their yarns, like Donegal: it’s rustic, good for accessories and items for men. I also tested Camel for lace. I like the vintage feeling of the yarns coupled with the contemporary looking logo“.
Veruska is a designer and a journalist, she wrote an entushiastic review of our Nanna. “Their yarns are materic, full, I like to handle them. Plus, I agree with Annalisa, traceability should be a must for yarn brands, nowadays”.
Natascia Sartini, who recently got a sneak peek of our new collection, says: “the producers are great women, you can feel the passion they put in their work“.
Alice Twain, who just designed Bariolino, a one-ball-of-yarn hat, tells us: “We are talking proper yarns, nothing cheaply novelty about them. They are classical and traditional and yet incredibly contemporary. A flexible, perfect material to creat with no limits“.
