Video Yarn Review : Lana Grande by Cascade Yarns

100% Peruvian Highland Wool, Lana Grande by Cascade Yarns


Brand : Cascade Yarns

Name : Lana Grande

Yarn Type : 100% Peruvian Highland Wool

Recommended needle size : US 13 (9mm)

Gauge : 8-10 sts = 4″/10cm

Weight : Category 6, Super Bulky

Yardage : 87 yards / 79.5 meters

Unit weight : 3.5 oz 100g

Scratchy : On a scale of 1-10, this is an 8. It’s a very soft wool, but it’s wool, so it’s a tiny bit itchy. In saying that, I wear this against my skin as a hat and it doesn’t bother me.

Squishy : This is nice and squishy and light. Even though it’s a super bulky, it’s not dense creating a lovely fluff to it. It has great stitch definition too!

Splitty : I think it knits up nicely. You can see in the video where I grabbed part of a stitch, so I needed to be more careful.

Machine wash : The package says you need to hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. It’s delicate.

My personal opinion :

I really love this yarn!

It’s a great super bulky yarn, 100% wool, that will work for all my super bulky patterns.

I definitely see myself using this yarn more in the future!
