Hand Knitting yarns spun in Italy by one of the world's leading spinners, Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgesisia.

Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia have been spinning yarns in Northern Italy since 1850. Like us they are a family owned business, and they still employ 1000 people in Northern Italy at the foothill of the Italian Alps. Their success has been built on supplying beautiful merino and merino blends to the worlds top quality industrial knitters and weavers. From which these knitters and weavers have crafted luxurious garments for the world’s most famous brands.

Using these same skills and 150 years of knowledge Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia have produced a luxurious collection of hand knitting yarns; 100% merino available in 4 ply, Double Knit and Aran weights and all machine washable, a beautiful blend of merino and silk supplied in 30 colours in a Double Knit weight, a fancy 100% merino slub yarn and of course, no collection would be complete without cashmere. This king of fibres is available to buy in balls of 25 grammes from a choice of 16 colours. It is very expensive so needs to be cherished and looked after! Make a garment from this cashmere and you will love it forever.
