Beautifully dyed, soft, and wonderful to work with


Loved this yarn!

Diane Bergmans
Lovely yarn 🧶, life in the longgrass

It took me a while to find this yarn, so i found your webshop.
I was very pleased with the way and kindness you handled my order and shipping.
It is just a lovely yarn to work with and it feels very soft on the skin.

For now my yarn is sleeping in the Haberdashery cabinate waiting for just the right time and will be knit up into a feather and fan shawl. I love the colors and the feel of this yarn and as soon as I get some other WIPS done it will be on my needles.

Beautiful and a delight

Olann is pretty much responsible for the part of my yarn collection that is all fancy in my eyes. This was my first Litlg purchase but I have a friend who raves about them and I see why she does. The yarn is wonderfully soft, the colours are beautiful and for my neurodivergency, it is a wonderful tactile yarn that I can't help but touch. I am still trying to decide what to do with the Spharia shade but the one skein alone is enough to have made me a fan and guarantee I will be back for more of them.
