Louisa Harding Nerisaa is a soft chenille yarn made of 100% cotton. Chenille is a process of making yarn which originated in France, and the word itself means caterpillar. Chenille, like silk reflects light differently depending on which way the garment is viewed, and this property coupled with the lightness of the yarn results in delicate hand knits.
Louisa Harding wool is kind to skin
The fine merino wool used in many of Louisa Harding knitting yarns has many unique properties being hydroscopic, moisture absorbent, the fibres trap air due to the natural crimp of the material and the fibres usually measure less than twenty four microns in diameter. Louisa Harding Ianthe is made of 50% cotton and 50% extra fine merino wool, making it ideal for babies or knitters with sensitive skin. The use of cotton in Louisa Harding knitting yarns is also good for baby’s skin because cotton is an organic natural fibre which is non-allergenic and soft. Ianthe is a Louisa Harding yarn which comes in light delicate shades of white, raffia, beige and also burgundy, orange and spice. Louisa Harding wool is designed to make knitting a fun and easy experience.
