100% natural hand dyed wool yarns. The yarns are made in Latvia from the wool which is collected from the sheeps grown up in Latvia.
The yarns are presented in the hanks. The weight of one hank is not exactly the same every time. That is why we say "the weight is around ~ ...g". The real hank weight can be +- 5% from the weight which is stated in the description line above.
The yarns are much harder than for example merino wool. But what our local experienced knitters say is that after each washing the garment becomes softer and softer. And the garments are usualy extreamly warm if they are made out from this yarn.
The yarns are beautifuly dyed. This is why we actualy are in love with them. They have long colour sections and transitions from one section to another section are very soft and beautiful.
If the hank would be of 100g weight it would have around 280m. The yarn is very suitable for the sweaters, pullovers, cardigans, vests, socks and accessoiries. We recomend to use 3.5-5mm kniting pins and/or crochet hook.
