La Lana Wools


I've often wondered why there only seem to be a few red Aspens in among all the gold. We know that that as aspen leaves mature, the green pigment engages in photosynthesis, converting sunshine to food and energy. The energy factories of green chlorophyll dominate all other colors. In fall, as the weather turns colder and with fewer hours of light, the green colors fade, and yellow, orange and red pigments — carotenoids and xanthophylls — are then revealed. Sunny days and cool nights produce the best spectrum of colors, with the reds really starting to show up. With seemingly, all of the Autumn colors to be found here........

La Lana Wools

This is a store that could easily make you leave home and sleep outside its door for want of incredible fiber.


Colors and textures galore.


Incredible Trouble

Every color of the rainbow lives here. Knitters and spinners can be heard sighing as they stand in awe. Or maybe that's just me doing that.

Back Room Trouble

Back at the ranch........

I was wondering about the red aspens when I was there. I love aspens. They look like gold in the sun in fall and in the spring I love the light green color of their new leaves. I even love them in the winter when they have lost their leaves and are so start white. Truly my favorite tree. I should see some this weekend! I was just at La Lana a couple weeks ago but didn't buy a thing!! It was a very traumatic day for me...and if you can believe it, I just wasn't in the mood.
