Norwood - DK Weight

1 item left

 Note: Our 2019 batch of Norwood is now in stock! Quantities are limited, and we won't be getting more until next summer, so what you see listed here is everything we have available. If we don't have the number of skeins you need in the colour you want please feel free to contact us and we can put you on the list for next year's batch.

Norwood is a completely Canadian locally-sourced yarn. The Norbouillet (Rambouillet-cross) fleeces were purchased from Pine Hollow Farm in Ontario, sent to Wellington Fibres (a small mill) for spinning, before coming to us to be dyed in our Montreal studio. You can read more about the story of this yarn on our blog.

The 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 in most patterns.
