This is grey Steingjerde yarn plant dyed with madder. The Steingjerde yarn is white wool from Røst, carded together with black sheep’s wool sourced from across northern Norway.

Røst is the island furthest out in Lofoten. Here the sheep live outside virtually all year round, often on the islets around Røstlandet itself. The sheep eat a lot of seaweed and kelp, and the wind blows salt into the wool. These special conditions result in beautifully white, soft wool.

We heat the wool in a hot dye bath containing pieces of madder root; a process done in our color kitchen on the farm. Natural variety and time in the pot define different shades of yellowy red. We make about 13 skeins per dye batch, and mark each skein with batch number. Be sure to get the same number if you want the exact same colour.
