Raincloud & Sage
In 100% wool sourced in Germany, 70% Merino and 30% Texel, providing superb texture and strength still being soft to the touch. Nord is a hardwearing workhorse yarn and in its classic 4ply weight it can be used for basically everything. With a gorgeous stitch definition that will make cables and colourwork pop, only your imagination sets the limits!
Completely traceable, from start to finish, this batch of Nord was sourced in Germany partially via our mill in Bavaria (Merino) and partially through a broker (Texel). The washing process was organized by the mill/broker and took place in Belgium. This yarn is spun at the Raincloud & Sage mill in Bavaria (Southern Germany). It was then dyed using synthetic dyes (certified ÖKO TEX Standard 100 Klasse 1) in south Hesse. This yarn is sustainably made, which at R&S means that it is an eco-friendly, biodegradable (non-superwash & nylon-free) wool yarn, produced as locally as possible with care to reduce the environmental impact in every way they can.
