New Katia Air Technology

If you like hand knits but love the idea of a lighter weight garment, then these new Katia Air Technology yarns are for you!

Katia Air Technology is a new method of spinning yarn that results in lofty, gorgeous yarns that are like heaven against the skin. These 4 new lines focus on quality and weightlessness – plus you’ll need less than a traditional yarn to make a full sized garment!

This chainette construction yarn is a blend of merino wool for warmth and versatility, cashmere for luxurious softness, and nylon for shape and body. It’s available in a range of contemporary autumnal shades that are perfect for cold weather garments. We love this sweater – you’ll need less of this DK weight yarn than you might think for such a fabulous sweater.

Wouldn’t you love to say that you knit your own cashmere sweater? It’s the height of luxurious knitwear, and you’ll love sitting by the fire this winter, in your plaid cashmere, with your spiced eggnog. We love the roll neck collar and the relaxed fit – it’s a perfect everyday sweater that will make you feel like a million bucks.

This aran, worsted weight yarn has a subtle shine that’s to die for. With a blend of 64% baby alpaca and 26% silk, this lofty yarn has a delicious drape that’s perfect for accessories and garments alike. It’s so soft that you’ll love wearing it as this snood scarf.

Thanks to the extreme insulation of silk, a scarf made with this yarn would be as warm as it is soft and snuggly – perfect for people who don’t like chunky knits, or for those who are allergic to the lanolin in wool.

Did we mention you’ll only need one ball of Katia Royal Silk to make this stunning snood?

This alpaca blend yarn is an aran, worsted weight. It’s incredibly lightweight and perfect for a winter sweater. The deep shades like Opal Green (208) are begging to be made into a houndstooth sweater like this one!

We love the contemporary yet classic chic houndstooth pattern and the large bell shaped sleeves. You could pair this oversized sweater with leggings or skinny jeans and a belt. Plus, you’ll only need 11 – 13 balls of this yarn, depending on size, to make this pattern!

This scrumptious yarn is a blend of silk and alpaca that yields an aran, worsted weight yarn that’s a dream to knit with. Available in a selection of neutral shades, this halo yarn yields a snuggly sweater that’s not too heavy to wear. We love this lace panel sweater with 3/4 length sleeves – so contemporary and fashionable!

This stunning sweater only takes 4 – 5 balls of Katia Silk Alpaca to make, depending on size. Where else could you get an alpaca and silk sweater for that cost? Plus, this one will be made to fit you like a glove!

Air Technology means that your knitted garments have all of the soft and snuggly feel, with less than half of the weight, without sacrificing warmth. It’s a perfect choice for people who don’t like weighty garments, even in the cold winter months. Whichever yarn you choose, you’re sure to end up with a fabulous project that will warm you to your soul until spring.
