Garnsurr is a social integration project for refugee women in Norway. The project is aimed at women, because women often find themselves struggling to find jobs feeling isolated because the oppotrunities to learn the Norwegain language are quite limited. Through working at Garnsurr these women learn Norwegian at the same time as feeling productive and creative managing a working life - which again contributes to their integration into the Norwegian culture and society.

Their colours range from dark, rich and earthy to lighter vibrant tones, the women's own cultural heritage often result in surprising combinations but always with a beautiful result. The Søkke Merino is tightly spun which gives a superb stitch definition to really show of the colours but not at least the textures of your garment whether you are knitting socks, shawls or light weight cardigans. It comes in a 4ply weight which is perfect for all those gorgeous designs created by independent designers like Stephen West, Andrea Mowry, Natalie Selles and many more.
