This is a wonderful yarn for socks, though it would also work for shawls and scarves as well. It feels great next to the skin and has a wonderfully bright look to it.
This is a brand-new yarn from Gedifra called Lana Mia. This is a merino sock wool, with 80% virgin wool superwash/ 20% nylon. Each pre-wound ball has 429 yards (390m)/ 100g.
The colors have long-ish color runs, not terribly long but just long enough to create sections of colors and leave you intrigued. It is a plied yarn and the plies each have their own long color run, creating a lovely tweed-ish look.
1. Denim is what it sounds like, blues of varying depths plied with a cream yarn that has a tinge of blue to it. The amount of light in each section varies, with some having all the lighter color and most mixed.
2. Grass is again aptly named, except that the greens are closer to teal to my eyes. Definitely on the cool side of green, again you have sections of varying depths, plied with a pale green so sometimes it is tweeded and sometimes all pale.
3. Grey is a marvelously sophisticated look, with black and charcoal and pale gray plied in the manner described above.
