dLana Rustica is made from Spanish merino wool, with an astonishing level of care taken at every step in the production process. We think the result is amongst the most characterful merino we’ve ever knitted with.

The process  begins with Javier and Esther selecting fleeces from transhumance sheep that are grazed in higher pastures in the summer and lower valleys during the winter. The wool is then processed and spun locally in a way that retains the integrity of the fibre before it’s dyed in a complete riot of joyous colours.

Unlike any other yarns in the shop, dLana wind the wool into cigar-shaped bobbins, adding an eccentric twist to the yarn, but also making it super-easy to begin knitting from the centre.

The yarn has all the softness you’d expect from a merino single ply with an added robustness that overcomes the structural issues sometimes associated with singles. This is a yarn for sweaters and accessories, and is the perfect solution for delicate scratch-phobic knitters who would like to have a go with some proper sheepy wool.
