Lana Mia Cotone, a stretchy cotton blend is a dream for summer socks and more. Dyed in the palette fo Elba Color, Lana Mia is a fingering weight yarn that works up into a batik-like fabric with a subtle stripe that looks great not only in socks, but summer tops and accessories.
Ideal for folks who are sensitive to wool, Lana Mia offers the kind of elasticity that you don't typically find in a plant-based fiber. Obviously, Lana Mia Cotones makes great socks, but because it's so stretchy and resiliant, you can knit it at a dk gauge for a garment, and it will still hold its shape. That means that just a couple of skeins will make a fun summer top, and Lana Mia Cotone's beautiful colors make even plain stitching a work of art.
