A note about the yarn from CamaRose
Lama wool is a natural product. Lama wool is lanolin-free, lightweight and strong. The hollow structure of the fibers gives the yarn a particularly good insulating ability. Viscose, also called Rayon, is a natural product made from the plant material cellulose. Viscose has a silky-like appearance in both gloss and softness and is particularly suitable for absorbing moisture. It is the shades of viscose in different colors that give the tweed effect in Lama Tweed. The nests are mainly in natural colors such as raw white, beige, brown and black which add a nice play to your knitting and crochet work.
Lama Tweed is very suitable for children, classic sweaters, cardigans, outerwear and blankets, with the rustic expression, good insulating ability, strength and softness.
The yarn spinning makes Lama Tweed unfold completely when knitted and rinsed. A knitted and washed sample is therefore highly recommended to get the full impression of the yarn's properties, expression and softness. The nests can provide surplus fibers in the work process, most of these fibers being flushed out at the first wash.
Lama Tweed from CaMaRose is produced in Peru taking into account the environment, animal welfare, the local farmers and workers. The manufacturer is oeko-tex certified on all its wool products and uses solar energy in production. High quality requirements as well as consideration for the environment, animals and people in the production are the basis for the spinning industry's cooperation with CaMaRose since 2010.
