Lang Yarns Ortica

Be amazed knitting with this unique yarn spun with cotton & stinging nettle!  Used in clothing for thousands of years, this plant fiber brings the fun wavy effect to Ortica.

Lightweight & breathable, this heavy DK/ light worsted yarn is perfect for warm weather pullovers, cardigans, tank tops & tees.  The two fibers plied together (one thicker & one threadlike) make stitches come to life.  The yarn is lovely for lace patterns, stockinette & more textural stitches.

The palette consists of a curated collection of resort favorites.
