CaMaRose Lamauld

The Lamauld is a beautiful, soft single-ply wool, exclusively produced in Peru for CaMaRose. This non-superwash yarn is made with 50% lama wool and 50% Peruvian highland wool.

Lamauld is an exclusive natural product, with a unique ability to protect against cold, as the fibres from the lama are hollow, which means that Lamauld has a better insulation capacity than, for example, sheep’s wool. Lama’s are related to the alpaca, but lama wool is NOT the same as alpaca. The fibres of the lama are somewhat coarser than the fibres of the alpaca. This gives the lama wool a more rustic look when it is knitted up, which means that the yarn is very suitable for Icelandic sweaters and other outerwear.

The yarn wound in a ball doesn’t do it any justice, as it will blossom and it unfolds its beauty once it is knitted up. As the fibre length from the lama varies, there can be an excess of fibres while knitting. This surplus usually disappears with its first wash.

The yarn may be washed cold on a wool program in the machine, using appropriate wool wash. Do not tumble dry, block into shape when wet and dry flat.

This is the same yarn as Lamatweed, but then without the tweed! So the yarns can be used together and patterns written especially for one of these yarns are interchangeable.

Description

“My name is Trine Bertelsen, I am a yarn wholesaler and the owner of CaMaRose.dk.

I founded my company in 2010, under the name Strikkebogen.dk, it started as a web shop, with my own designed for babies and children patterns.

In late 2010, I started importing yarn from Peru and started wholesaling to other shops.

I started with only  Pima cotton and the Lama cotton 1/2, but soon I began to expand the range and developed  new qualities such as Lamatweed.

I have been  designing and writing knitting and crochet patterns since 2008. Before founding my own business, I worked as a freelance knit designer for other wholesalers in Denmark and abroad, for weekly magazines and knitting magazines. The experience I gained from working for others has been absolutely indispensable and I am even convinced that designing and writing a good knitting / crochet pattern is something that takes many years to learn and it is something that is always developing.

From the very beginning of 2010, my 3 children have inspired me to design and are my daily sources of inspiration. This is the reason why  I chose to change the name of my company from the Strikkebogen to CaMaRose.dk, it is abbreviation of my 3 children’s names, Carl-Emil, Mathilde and Anna-Rose.

My mission, from the beginning, was to be able to sell good quality yarn under my own name, which is affordable and not available elsewhere . I chose to work with with suppliers who comply with ethical and environmental regulations with regards animals and the environment in the production of yarn. In addition to this i wanted to design knitting and crochet patterns that are easily available and fashionable.
