100% pure wool (non-superwash), this is your newest go-to workhorse yarn. Made from a special blend of South American wools, Lanas is a classic worsted-weight yarn with a bouncy spin and crisp stitch definition. The excellent shape memory and anti-microbial properties of natural wool are retained due to Lanas being non-superwash-treated. This also makes it feltable, and Berroco has done swatch testing and made a blog post about intentionally felting Berroco Lanas.
We have collected our favourite patterns designed specifically in Berroco Lanas for you here on Ravelry, or use it in most patterns calling for worsted-weight wool or wool blends.
If you are looking for its machine-washable equivalent, look no further than Berroco Ultra Wool, and feel free to substitute Lanas and Ultra Wool for each other in patterns, such as using Berroco Lanas for the Berroco Ultra Wool patterns in Berroco Portfolio 4 and Berroco Portfolio 6. Both of these books are available in softcover from Urban Yarns, or individual patterns may be purchased digitally from Ravelry or the Berroco website.
