Sand, 2 ply 100g, chunky
White wool from Spælsau sheep reared on Vestvågøya and Flakstad in Lofoten. The blend of soft bottom wool and fine, shiny cover hair results in a gorgeous yarn of a rare quality.
Photos on the skeins show the beach on Myrland, Flakstadøy, where many of these Spælsau sheep live.
The yarn has the same thickness as Storm, Full Storm and Tare.
‘Vintage’ yarn, every year has its own nuance. The 2014 vintage is sold out and we have only a little of the 2017 batch left.
The yarn contains sheep fat (lanolin) and becomes softer and airier after a gentle wool wash. You should knit a sample patch, wash and dry it and then measure / calculate the number of stitches / pin thickness before larger projects.
