4 Favner 3 ply, 50/100g (4 Fathoms)
White lamb's wool from Vestvågøya dyed with indigo. Crossbred wool of Norwegian White Sheep.
Here on the island, we have a bunch of discerning sheep farmers who are skilled in their breeding work, and wool quality is the focus. This is soft, luxurious, first-class lamb's wool.
We dye the yarn blue with natural indigo dye. We make about 13 skeins per dye batch, and mark each skein with the batch number. Be sure to get the same number if you want the exact same colour.
Our indigo-dyed yarn has images from a map of Lofoten from 1747.
100 grams in one skein = about 210 meters.
