YARN OF THE DAY
Jaanan lankapaja (JAANA’S YARN SHOP)
Now you have opened the 4th door of your Yarn advent calendar! Great!
The yarn is made entirely of Finnish wool and is strengthened with nylon. Among knitters this kind of yarn is called a sock yarn.
The sheep farm in Alahärmä, Finland, belongs to my childhood friend. I pick the wools myself, sort the wool and bring it to the spinning mills. This yarn is truly made in Finnish Ostrobothnia!
The colour for the yarn comes from the sheep so it is not treated except by washing and using a little spinning oil. The yarn turns a little lighter with every wash.
The wool from Finnish sheep is rather short so there will be a few tiny knots. Knots are just a sign of minimizing the surplus.
