White lamb's wool from Vestvågøya dyed with tansy. 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 pick tansy which grows here in Lofoten and then hand-dye the wool in our color kitchen on the farm. Tansy is considered one of the best natural yellow dyes and is reliably lightfast. Place of growth and picking season result in different shades of yellow. We make about 9 skeins per dye batch and mark each skein with the batch number. Be sure to ask for the same number if you want the exact same shade of colour.

Photo of the puffin on the label was taken by senior ornithologist Tycho Anker-Nilssen.
