Norwood is a 100% Canadian locally-sourced yarn. The Norbouillet (Rambouillet-cross) fleeces were purchased from a farmer, washed by us here at Sweet Paprika, then sent to a small mill for spinning, before finally coming back to us to be dyed in our Montreal studio.

This wool is very fine, and is just as soft as our imported Merino. The 3-ply yarn knits up to DK weight, and can be substituted for Minuet (our superwash merino) in most patterns.
