If you're wondering why you should "Like" the Muench Yarns Facebook Page when you are entering a drawing for Lana Grossa, well, there is a perfectly logical explanation! Muench Yarns is the exclusive distributor of Lana Grossa products in the United States-as well as bringing us GGH and their namesake line, Muench Yarns. Responsible for bringing these fantastic fibers to our doorstep all the way from Germany, Muench is located a state over from us in sunny California! We are very excited that they gave us the opportunity to be a part of their giveaway!

And now for some awesome LG facts! Lana Grossa is the largest distributor of hand knitted yarns in Europe. The demand for their top shelf yarns and unparalleled pattern support is so high that they are building a new facility to process their products, ensuring that everyone can continue to enjoy their fabulous fibers anywhere and everywhere! Known for their extensive collections of high fashion yarns-not to mention over 500 trendy designs in pattern support every year-Lana Grossa's motto is "Always something special". Needless to say, they definitely go above and beyond to bringing quality yarns and innovative designs to the fiber arts community world-wide.

Alta Moda: so soft and cozy!
For those of you who are not familiar with Lana Grossa's Alta Moda line, it is comprised of three sumptuous yarns: Alta Moda Alpaca, Alta Moda Cashmere, and Alta Moda Seta. All of these yarns feature a unique woven texture that reduces weight and bulk while maintaining a thicker gauge that works up quickly. The result is a warm, chunky fabric with great drape that is not too bulky or cumbersome, as is sometimes the case with heavier weight yarns. The braided construction of the Alta Moda line also produces an evenly textured fabric and provides superb stitch definition. I have had the pleasure of knitting up a shawlette with two balls of the Alta Moda Alpaca that resulted in a sweet neck-warmer I've been wearing all winter. Stay tuned as Lana Grossa is expanding their Alta Moda offerings this spring and we are eagerly anticipating more of this exceptional yarn within the next month or so!

Don't forget to let Muench know which is your most beloved Lana Grossa yarn for your chance to win 20 balls of the indescribably soft Alta Moda Seta!

Happy knitting and crocheting :)

I absolutely adore the Muench family yarn (especially in tiffany and lavender) for its softness, smooth knitting, and affordable pricing!
