Go for the unusual: Knitting with Merino bouclé yarn

Posted on

All too often, unusual and fancy yarns are made from artificial fibres such as acrylics. But it doesn't have to be that way!

Have a look at ggh Limba, a gorgeous bouclé yarn in 8ply/ DK. Made from 100% Merino wool in super wash quality. "Super wash" means that the yarn has been produced in such a way that even though this is a pure wool product, you can wash this in the washing machine at 30 degrees Celsius.

ggh Limba comes in a range of gorgeous colours - combine in bold coloured stripes or choose more subdued and pastel shades - the choice is yours!

We now have some beautiful Rebecca patterns in stock for ggh Limba, from striped jumpers to fashion cardigans.

Take this gorgeous red-brown open cardigan, for example. You knit this in stocking stitch and work from side to side. The result is an easy flowing shape with long front ends. 

This is actually a lot easier to achieve than you may think! 

Extra bonus: ggh Limba feels very light when knitted up. You only need 550g of ggh Limba to make this generously cut cardigan in size 10-12. 

Thanks to the fact that it is 100 percent natural Merino, it has good breathability and will stand you in good stead for those days when you just need that extra layer that is not too warm and not too cold.

ggh Limba is also beautiful as a lace knit yarn - have a look at this lacy lady's Raglan sweater that includes a simple lace strip running down the front. 

By working with slightly bigger needles in 5mm, you add an airiness to this sweater that makes it perfect for spring and early summer.
