Loden is a yarn with great tolerance partly because of the raw materials and partly because after spinning, the yarn is slightly felted. The felting makes the yarn create a beautiful and durable knitted result that does not lint, even though the yarn is very soft to the touch. Loden comes in close to 30 colours, all slightly tweeded.
