We have talked about Lang Yarns here on the blog many times before. We have discussed the high quality of their products, the sophisticated styling of their patterns, and classic colourways of their range. If you hadn’t yet gathered… we are pretty big fans of Lang.
This past Fall marked the launch of a new yarn for Lang called Novena Color. Much like it’s little brother yarn Novena, Novena Color is soft to the touch, and light as a feather. The difference between these two sibling yarns is that Novena is solid in it’s shading and packaged in a 25 gram ball, while Novena Colour is self-striping and available in 50 gram balls. With fantastic yardage coming in at 220 meters per ball, a little can go a long way.
Take this shawl for example- only three balls! A simple stitch pattern and we found ourselves with an incredibly cozy yet classic triangular shawl.
Whether you are a new knitter just mastering the art of reading knits and purls, or a well-seasoned knitter who just wants a project to throw in their bag at a moments notice that requires very little of your attention- this is it!
We knit the version pictured above, and we can say with 100% honesty and certainty- each stitch was a pleasure.

Just remember that you will need to double the quantity of yarn required, being that the balls are half the size of the Novena Color.
Happy knitting everyone!
