All of the color chart colors are available in Louhitar II yarn.
Please let us know when ordering which colors you would like. All the colors are shown on the Color Charts page.
Our colorchart is rather extensive at the moment, but even then, some customers do not find the shade they are looking for in the colorchart. In case of a custom colorway, choose the "custom colorway" option for an additional 10 % charge. We will contact you after placing an order to determine the shade you are looking for.
All custom colorways are dyed separately for you, and the entire batch will guaranteed to be of the same lot. We cannot guarantee the same exact shade onto the next batch so please order the amount necessary for you to complete your project. These custom colorways are always special cases, so they will be charged a moderate 10 % extra per skein.
For yarns to be dyed into colorchart colorways we do not charge extra. The additional custom dye job charge applies only to shades blended separately to your needs.
Custom colorway orders are not applicable for the return or refund terms.
For custom dye orders we will notify you of the processing time. All orders will be shipped only after payment has been received.
Louhitar II is our name-sake yarn and for a good reason: it is very close to our hearts. Its predecessor, Louhitar, was a carded 2-ply Finnsheep wool yarn, but sadly we couldn't get the base yarn anymore. Louhitar II can bear the name with pride, as it is, like the original Louhitar, a carded 2-ply yarn processed entirely in Finland of Finnish Finnsheep wool.
This fluffy yarn is perfect for stranded knitting. It yields incredibly warm accessories, such as mittens and hats, and gets surprisingly soft with wear, although it may feel a little coarse at first. With gauges of 18 to 24 stitches per 10 cm (4½ to 6 sts per inch) it yields quick knits which will keep you warm in any weather.
The base yarn for Louhitar II is either natural gray or natural white. Please choose the base you want in the drop-down menu.
