LOTTA is an oversized pullover with an allover diamond lace pattern.

The sweater is oversized and thick. Though the fabric looks firm and sturdy, the sweater is deceptively light and very warm. Worked with Fibre Gentili, the sweater is one-size smaller with a cropped wide body, and is even lighter and more relaxed.

The yarn get softer after wet blocking and have excellent insulating quality and breathability, which allows you to make hand-knit garments with a great texture. Choosing the color to use is also fun, thanks to its wide color palette. Choose whichever yarn and color according to your style.

ABOUT THE FIBER

Efforts have been dedicated to recovering the last flocks of the pure breed and initiating a biodiversity preservation program as explained more in Our Story. Choosing Gentile di Lucania yarn means more than acquiring wool; you're wrapping yourself in history, tradition, and a commitment to a brighter, sustainable future.

THE WOOL

These sheep live the good life in the Basilicata region, roaming free among the ancient forests. Based in the Italian Biella textile district our supply chain is a well-guarded secret, ensuring quality and embracing social and environmental sustainability at every step.

THE FIBER PROCESS

All processing takes place in Biella's luxury textile district, home to ancient and invaluable craftsmanship where the human touch still makes a significant difference.

The hand-dyed colors of the Elements Capsule are crafted by Tréliz, representing an excellence in Mediterranean creativity and artisanal work.

RECCOMENDED CARE

Handle our soft and delightful yarn with care. It's delicate nature requires gentle attention for a soft, airy fluff finish. Be mindful of its fragility when winding and knitting with it. With proper care, your final product will showcase the beauty of this yarn without any compromise in quality.

WET-BLOCKING

  1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
  2. Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
  3. Soak work for 30 minutes or longer allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
  4. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
  5. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
