Uttakleiv, white lambswool, 1 ply, 50g
Natural white lambswool from our home island, Vestvågøya. The island is home to a group of discerning sheep farmers who are skilled in their breeding work, and make wool quality a primary focus. This is soft, gorgeous, first-class lamb wool. Also note that this 1 ply quality has some extra spin so we recommend rib knitting or knitting back and forth to prevent the garment from twisting.
IMPORTANT: see photo of the yarn before and after washing; the skein on the left contains sheep fat (lanolin) and dust from the sheep, and after a light wool wash it becomes softer whiter and airier! We advise you first knit a sample, wash and dry it, then measure and calculate the number of stitches to establish the right pin size before starting larger projects.
50 grams skein/ball = about 315 meters.
