Peer Gynt


Made in Pure New Norwegian wool, Peer Gynt entered the market in 1938 and has since become a symbol of Norwegian heritage and pride. The need for a rougher and better fitted sport weight yarn led to the development of Peer Gynt, made of long stable wool fibers. This makes it perfect for felting projects as well and warm winter garments. Being Sandnes’ flagship yarn quality, Peer Gynt is one of Norway’s best sold sport weight yarns.
