Louvre is a wonderful lightweight printed yarn in soft viscose with a mildly shiny effect. It's construction and weight makes a fabric with a light, airy drape, perfect for summer garments - especially crochet which can come out a little "heavy."
Each ball of yarn weighs 50g and has 165 metres. It's not a standard thickness, maybe about a 4ply, Katia recommend using size 2.5mm/3mm knitting needles 3mm/3.5mm crochet hooks. Katia reckon you'd need about 8 balls of yarn are needed to make a woman's size 12 short sleeve jumper but they don't say whether that's knitted or crocheted (doh!). We reckon it will make a gorgeous summer top in a lacy stitch.
The worked-up samples shown are knitted.
Machine washable up to 30º with a short spin cycle. Do not tumble dry. 96% viscose, 3% polyester, 1% polyamide.
Did we mention that it's gorgeous?
Note: Yes, Katia sell this much cheaper direct but quite simply they are unfairly undercutting their retailers. I wouldn't bother stock them any more but this yarn was unmissable! Victoria x
