Fritidsgarn is a woollen yarn that is 100% Norwegian. Everything from the washing of the wool to the winding of the yarn is done at our factory at Foss Eikeland in Sandnes.
Garments made of Norwegian wool are light, warm and grow softer every time you wear them. Norwegian wool is durable and pill-resistant, and its superior resilience ensures that garments keep their shape over time. Be kind to the environment! Wool is breathable and rarely needs washing. Instead, we recommend airing your wool garments. Garments made of Norwegian wool have a long lifespan and can remain just as beautiful for several generations. As a result, Norwegian wool can contribute to more sustainable consumption. Woollen yarn is well-suited to felting.
Fibre Content: 100% Norwegian Wool
Weight /Yardage: 50 g = 70 m
Gauge /Tension: 15 sts = 4″ /10 cm on 5.5 mm ndls
Knitting Weight: Chunky
Care: Hand Wash; Lay Flat to Dry
We recommend hand washing for all garments knitted with Fritidsgarn. Be careful not to soak the garments, as this may cause the colours to run. Centrifuge well and dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
