JORD, plant-dyed yarn from Old Norse sheep
JORD is the yarn FULL STORM dyed with madder root. The wool from Old Norse sheep consists of long shiny cover hairs that protect the sheep from weather and wind, and a soft and warm core wool. Both of these fiber types are carded together and spun into yarn. It produces a glossy, warm and robust yarn that is well suited for sweaters and mittens, among other things.
Some loose wool hairs will appear after the first wash. You should knit a test piece, wash and dry it and then measure/calculate the number of stitches/needle thickness before larger projects.
Same thickness as SAND, STORM, FULL STORM, SKY, ROGN, MOSE and SNØ.
