For the environmentally conscious knitter: Gorgeous ecological wool imported directly from Sweden. This is the ideal yarn for Nordic or Icelandic sweaters!

Marks & Katten is Sweden's oldest yarn manufacturer and well known for its amazing quality and beautiful colours. 

This is a typical Scandinavian lopi-style yarn (single ply) which results in a beautifully even stitch appearance. The single ply is similar to a hand-spun yarn and can be more fragile to knit than a tightly plied yarn. However, due to the length of its fibres, it knits into a sweater that is both sturdy and soft. 

The 100% natural virgin wool is sourced from Europe and produced and dyed under strict conditions with as little environmental impact as possible:

  • Scoured with water.
  • No use of textile agents.
  • Dyed with environment friendly dyestuffs in accordance with guidelines of the International Association of Nature Textiles IVN.
  • The labels are made from 100% recycled paper.

The yarn softens further with cold water (for example when blocking your garment).
