Sølje is a 4Ply 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.
Sølje offers a great grip and a welldefined stitch definition making it equally beautiful in colourwork and textured patterns.
