Tukuwool Harmas Noittaantila
Harmas Noittaantila is a limited edition yarn from the makers of Tukuwool, spun from the fleeces of the Finnish Kainuu Grey sheep breed. The wool for this yarn comes from a Finnish sheep farm, Noittaantila, which is located in Tohmajärvi in the east of Finland.
Kainuu Grey is an original rare Finnish sheep breed that is greatly valued. Kainuu is the province in northeastern Finland where the breed was discovered. The lambs are born black but as they grow older turn into various shades of grey. The wool is fine and fluffy, even shiny and very comfortable to wear. The knitted fabric shows different stitch patterns beautifully. A very natural, untreated yarn, which smells of sheep!
Tukuwool Harmas is a sport weight two-ply yarn for knitting garments and accessories. 150m per 50g skein is enough for a hat or a pair of mittens.
