The Lentävä Lapanen knitting café, which combines cosily a yarn store and a café. It is like a living room for those who have found a passion for knitting, as well as being a wonder world of yarn. Lentävä Lapanen is located in the centre of Järvenpää.
In commemoration of Sibelius's 150th birthday jubilee, Lentävä Lapanen produced a complete set of materials and instructions for mittens based on the design by Aino Sibelius. Aino Sibelius, née Järnefelt (1871 - 1969), was married to composer Jean Sibelius. The package contains a knitting outline and yarn. A perfect souvenier from your trip to Lake Tuusula!
Lentävä Lapanen has its own domestic yarn known as Lempi, which is made from the wool of the Kainuun Harmas sheep. The wool is dyed by hand and it is best suited to socks and stockings.
Lentävä Lapanen arranges courses in knitting and weaving fo groups on request.
