100% Wool

100% wool from the Norwegian pelssau.

Hand dyed with acid dyes.

This is a relatively soft, minimally processed wool yarn produced by Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk.

The wool comes from Norwegian pelssau (pelt sheep), which is a crossbreed between Gotland sheep and the Norwegian breed Spælsau. The wool is a combination of lighter and darker shades of grey.

Norwegian sheep are mostly free ranging and graze the Norwegian landscape all summer before being sheared in the autumn. There are minimal issues with insects and norwegian sheep are never muelesed. Norwegian Wool has received the Nordic Swan Eco label.

The yarn is washed and handdyed in the north of Norway by Nina. Dyed using low impact acid dyes, with great care taken to use as little water and dye as possible.

Handwash in cold water.
