Lush, uno scialle in Luxor

Why carded yarns for Lanecardate?


Why do we produce carded (woolen) yarns? This is a peculiarity of ours: despite the fact that in our industrial district the main product are combed or worsted yarns, Lane Cardate has always believed in woolens. Not just wools, cashmere, angora and camel: all of them carded. Carding is a process that, prior to spinning, […]

The easiest seed stitch scarf

il punto grana di riso della scaripa

Stitch patterns can’t get much easier than seed stitch: knit one stitch and purl one stitch over an odd number of stitches.

A leftovery shawl


Not even a yard of our precious cashmere yarn Luxor has to be wasted. This is likely what pushed DeDitte to use up two leftover Luxor balls in a bright red to add interest to her Faroese shawl (a shawl created in the peculiar shape used in the Fær Øer islands). The red stripes in this […]
