Today a big package sent from Latvia was delivered to our house. When we were in Riga in August we bought a couple of hanks of the yarn that was used in the knitted mittens that were for sale at Tines. About a week ago I placed an order for more yarn at their web shop.
Yarn for mittens and hats
There are colours here that I normally would not choose. But they are part of the Latvian tradition and I know that they all have an important role in the knitted mittens. The yarn is a thin 2-ply wool, 350 metres per 100 grams.
It is nice to know that all these colours will brighten the dark and cold winter that is coming.
