My love affair with Scheepjeswol continues and my latest discovery is this super soft, super cosy yarn called Luca. Luca is a non-twisted lush yarn made of 30% Wool – 70% Premium Acrylic and is available in 23 delicious colour shades. The yarn has a soft sheen and is perfect for cosy Winter knits. Using a 5mm knitting needle or crochet hook, one can quickly whip up some fabulous creations.

I have chosen five gorgeous shades for my next project, four jewel colours and one to pull it all together. As always, it all started with some inspiration. This time it was my current journal into which I scribble and paste ideas. The cover made me think of India, the Himalayas, Kashmir and all the colours you might find there. With Christmas coming up and the weather turning cold, I am thinking up ideas to wrap up warm, feel cosy and sparkle at the same time.

I wound some yarn into small balls and did some swatching…

I have an idea in my head that seems perfect for this yarn and I would love to share the journey with you. Wish me luck and watch out for next weeks update on how I am getting on. In the meantime why not have a look at all the gorgeous Luca shades here and start dreaming of your very own creations.

Happy making! Enjoy!
