Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 476 • Striped Raglan Pullover

La Gran Striped Raglan Pullover

Warm and fuzzy, La Gran is a classic brushed mohair yarn that never goes out of style. This week's pattern, an easy and quick knit, is worked in the round from the bottom up with very little finishing to do once the knitting is done. This pattern is a good blank canvas for stripes – work in wider stripes, or use up your odd balls and leftovers of La Gran and work stripes in many colors, or keep it classic and work in a solid color.

Our flagship yarn, La Gran has been part of the Classic Elite Yarns collection since the very beginning in the mid 1980's. With plenty of colors to choose from, you're sure to find just the right one for your special project!

Mohair is fine and lustrous and has many of the good qualities of wool. It can absorb moisture yet still feel warm and dry and mohair shows color beautifully! Lightweight and airy, La Gran is spun with a strong binder–a combination of wool and nylon–to secure the fluffier mohair fibers.
