Esencia is a Danish company that primarily produces clothes of the highest quality. The company cares deeply about the high quality of the raw materials, fair trade and sustainability at every step of the production. 

Esencia has now also launched a yarn, which we’ve been lucky to be the first ones to add to our assortment. 

The yarn is soft and exquisite and a little on the thicker side, with a running length of 54 yards (50 m) per 1.8 oz (50 g). The yarn is perfect for chunky sweaters and slipovers for children and adults alike as well as blankets, pillow covers, hats, gloves, scarves to keep your loved ones warm, and much, much more. The sky really is the limit! 

Esencia buys their raw materials in Bolivia from the "Association of Llama and Alpaca Farmers of the High Andes" (AIGACAA), which was founded in 1991 and whose purpose is to support the underprivileged families in the Bolivian Highlands. With this yarn you can knit exquisite clothes and treal your entire family while also supporting many families that make their living breeding llamas and alpacas.

I just received my first Lapaz wool and its lovely and soft, suitable for a cardigan and a jumper I'm going to knit. The only downfall is its only 50g for the price it be good if they made it 100g instead or more! Then charge a little extra. Beautiful selection of colours as well.


Devon

This has to be my new favourite yarn. I wish the skeins were larger, but it is still worth the price. It is so soft and comfy, and a pleasure to work with. Very highly recommended.


Elizabeth

The SOFTEST yarn ever. Used this to make a hat and it’s oh so warm and perfect soft. It does felt a bit so if you prefer a very clean look this may not be for you.


Sheila

Absolutely love this yarn. I have made multiple hats for cancer patients who have lost their hair, they love this soft yarn against their sensitive skin.


Audrey

Wonderful soft warm yarn that knits up quickly. Sorry to see it go. Such wonderful colours, too!
