Snaeldan Nappað Tógv 2 ply - Natural Shades 100gm
This high quality yarn is produced in the Faroe Islands from a mixture of Faroese wool and Falklands merino wool. The lanolin-rich Faroese wool is firstly combed to remove all the coarse outer hairs of the fleece. The resulting wool is known in Faroese as nappað tógv, which is very soft. This is then blended with the merino for further added softness. This is a sturdy yarn which gives excellent stitch definition, and is available in range of natural colours. A truly unique and beautiful yarn.
N.B. This yarn has a fairly dry feel before washing, but blooms and softens considerably after washing. We recommend that you knit and wash a swatch before starting your project.
Snaeldan 2-ply is equivalent to a 4-ply/fingering weight yarn.
