Pirkkalanka Ohut 4 Ply
Pirkkalanka is a gorgeous yarn from Finland, in 2 weights; Ohut, a light four ply/fingering weight and Vahva which is like a thick double/worsted weight. (A tension square is essential for these yarns.) Don’t let the Finnish names of the weights put you off, these yarns are lovely for garments, the wool is smooth and silky, not itchy scratchy like some Scandinavian and Icelandic yarns can be. Pirkkalanka has beautiful stitch definition and dense solid colours with sheen, perfect for jumpers, cardigans, even throws. It knits up to a warm, light fabric, and is really special.
We have a range of the colours, chosen for the autumn and winter this year, and suitable for women and men’s garments.
The Pirkkalanka company uses numbers for the colours, so to save confusion we have named them for you, we have chosen names that we hope reflect the tones of the yarns, and help you choose. (Please be aware that these names are the ones we have chosen, if you look at Pirkkalanka elsewhere it may not have the same names.)
