Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk


Availability : In stock
Traditionally spun by the family owned mill Hillesvåg, in lustrous Norwegian Pelt wool, Blåne is an aran weight yarn in a colour palette which richness is unlike anything else.
Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk AS is a traditional Norwegian family owned wool spinning mill founded in 1898. It has been in the same family for four generations, and some of the machines that are being used are over 100 years old. The exclusive Hillesvåg yarns are made out of Norwegian wool, and are handcrafted with love to bring further joy to knitters and wool enthusiasts all over the world. Blåne is a heavy aran weight yarn spun from fibre from the Norwegian pelssau breed which has a lustrous, curly fleece with a quite soft, fine hand. The Norwegian Pelssau (also known as Norwegian Pelt or Norwegian Fur Sheep) originated as a cross between Gotland and Old Norwegian (also known as Wild Sheep) and its wool is dark grey, grey and white coloured combined. The mixed coloured fibres result in a perticular debth and richness of colour when dyed, but due to the nature of the wool it does not come in a pure white. Blåne works well together with Hillesvåg's Troll, which has white in its colour palette. Blåne offers a great grip and a welldefined stitch definition making it equally beautiful in colourwork and textured patterns.
