Landler is a resilient, very warm worsted weight yarn. German Merino is a little less soft than South American of Australian or Kiwi Merino, but it pills less and is a stronger fibre overall. Landler is the perfect choice for your warm winter sweaters and accessories. It knits up quickly and is a nice choice for holiday gift knitting.
The Landler is a ¾ time folk dance native to Southern Germany, Austria, Bohemia and Slovenia. It’s a cheerful, rather fast dance including artful arm movements, stomping, clapping and yodelling.
