Brand new for 2017! Olana is a yarn Jill’s been working on for years. It uses local unregistered cormo wool, blended with different shades of alpaca from the Berkshires, US grown & processed cashmere & angora from the bunnies raised by Jill’s mom.

Olana is soft & fuzzy the structure looks like a single but is actually plied. Because of this the gauge can be worked quite widely, nice & snug for cozy hats & mittens or really loosely for drapey soft shawls & sweaters.
